This Week on SHIELD is a weekly series where we highlight a few cool things that we’re currently enjoying or looking forward to on our SHIELD ANDROID TV. Each week we’ll give a shout out to a new (or updated) app that we’re excited about. Additionally, we’ll also point out a game that you should be playing and a hot new TV show and movie that’s ready for you to stream on SHIELD. This week we’re highlighting Google’s Chromecast app, Super Mega Baseball Extra Innings in our Android games store, Black Sails (Season 3) on Starz and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 on Google Play Movies and TV.
Of course, we also want to know what’s on YOUR SHIELD, so hit us up on Twitter with the hashtag #twos and let us know what you’re rocking this week and maybe we’ll show you some love the following week.
Chromecast devices like NVIDIA SHIELD allow you to stream all types of media to your Android TV using your phone or even your SHIELD tablet. Not only does the app let you cast content from your mobile device to your SHIELD Android TV, the app is also a great place to discover “castable” content.
With Spring Training in full swing and Opening Day just a week or so away, if you’re a fan of “America’s Pastime” then you’re gonna love Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings on NVIDIA SHIELD. Sporting a bevy of what the developers describe as “semi-athletic baseball stars,” Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings is the perfect game for either solo play or multiplayer action for up to four players. The perfect baseball game to play on your couch with friends, in Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings, players can compete in single player and co-op seasons.
Black Sails is essentially a prequel to the classic Robert Louis Stevenson novel "Treasure Island." A pirate adventure, Black Sails centers on the tales of Captain Flint, who has a reputation throughout the West Indies as being the most brilliant, most feared of all the Golden Age pirates. Taking place around 1715, Black Sails is definitely not for the entire family as it’s rife with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and more than its fair share of violence. We’re super excited about this show and as the Season 3 finale is about to air there’s no better time to binge watch this great show.
The final installment in The Hunger Games series, Mockingjay, Part 2 follows Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) as she teams up with Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), Gale (Liam Hemsworth) and Finnick for one last mission. As they leave District 13 to liberate the citizens of Panem and assassinate President Snow, watch as our intrepid crew tries to free millions.
Each week we ask you, the NVIDIA SHIELD community "What's on your SHIELD this week?" Here are a few of our favorites:
