This Week On SHIELD - May 5, 2016

By William O'Neal - Thu, May 5, 2016

This Week on SHIELD we’re excited about the UFC.TV & UFC FIGHT PASS app, Alpha Protocol on GeForce NOW, “Ash vs Evil Dead” on Starz Play, and “Deadpool” on Google Play.

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.

Check out the UFC app on SHIELD

App: UFC.TV & UFC FIGHT PASS ($9.99 / month)

For MMA fans you really can’t beat the UFC.TV & UFC FIGHT PASS app. For $9.99 / month you get access to a wealth of content including fights that are included in the monthly fee as well as older bouts. Want to binge-watch all of the fights from 2015? Go for it. In addition, with the UFC.TV & UFC FIGHT PASS app you can easily order pay-per-view fights. With an ever-expanding UFC Fight Library and replays of past pay-per-view events, TV shows, and original content, subscribers can also watch press conferences and weigh-ins of major fights. As the UFC also has a relationship with FOX Sports we’ve really been enjoying the FOX Sports GO and UFC.TV & UFC FIGHT PASS app combination to ensure that we don’t miss a thing.

Game: Alpha Protocol on GeForce NOW

This week we’re stoked to announce that Alpha Protocol is now available on SHIELD, and it’s free for all GeForce NOW members to stream! A role-playing game with bits of action, adventure, and intrigue, Alpha Protocol is the latest game to join the GeForce NOW family. Developed by Obisidian Entertainment, Alpha Protocol is a must-play for action-adventure and role-playing fans.

TV show: “Ash vs Evil Dead” on Starz Play

Fans of ‘80s-era slasher films will no doubt love this over-the-top homage to 1981’s classic, “The Evil Dead.” In “Ash vs Evil Dead,” Bruce Campbell reprises his role as Ash Williams. Armed with his iconic chainsaw-hand, Ash is an aging anti hero who has managed to avoid pretty much everything, especially fighting monsters for the last 30 years. But as the proverbial “they” likes to say, “we may be done with the past but the past isn’t done with us.” And such is the fate of Ash Williams, after he carelessly unleashes a Deadite plague that threatens to destroy mankind. “Ash vs Evil Dead” is currently streaming on Starz Play. Not a purely cord-cutting app, you’ll need a satellite or cable subscription to use the Starz Play app on SHIELD.

Movie: “Deadpool” on Google Play

”Deadpool” is the perfect date movie! Seriously, trust us on this one. Starring Ryan Reynolds (no, you’re thinking of the “Hey girl” guy), “Deadpool” follows the story of Wade Wilson, a former Special Forces operative turned mercenary. After an evil scientist, Ajax, tortures, disfigures and transforms him into “Deadpool,” our intrepid hero embarks on the path to hunt down the man who who tried to destroy him. Boasting accelerated healing powers and a wicked sense of humor, “Deadpool” is NOT a family film. That said, who doesn’t love a Ryan Reynolds movie. “Deadpool” is currently streaming on Google Play.
