By NVIDIA - Sun, Oct 29, 2017

SHIELD Software Experience Upgrade 6.1 is available now. And alongside it is a welcome addition to the ever-growing app library.

NVIDIA SHIELD TV is already the best place to enjoy YouTube's suite of apps and experiences. And today, SHIELD became the first streaming media player to get the new YouTube TV app.

YouTube TV is a dream for anyone who's looking for their favorite TV shows, movies and sports how they want it, when they want it, and where they want it. It's cable-free live TV – including broadcast channels in most major markets. It also brings the best cable channels, like ESPN, AMC, USA and Disney, without the hassle.

Now Playing on SHIELD: YouTube TV

When you get up from the living room, you can take it on the go, watching on your smartphone, tablet or computer. And when you just can't watch live, you get unlimited cloud DVR recordings that are saved for nine months.

Each account comes with six unique logins. So everyone gets their own password, recommendations, and DVR. No longer do you have to worry about your spouse deleting the latest episode of The Walking Dead before you've had a chance to watch it.

Best of all, you can try it free! After your trial, it starts at $35/month with no contracts and no commitments – meaning you can cancel at any time, no questions asked.

You can download YouTube TV from the Google Play store on your SHIELD.

Providing the Best YouTube Experience

YouTube is the #1 most watched app on TV – with over 100 million hours watched each day in the living room – and SHIELD TV is the best device to enjoy it on. With support for YouTube, YouTube 360, YouTube Kids, YouTube TV, and YouTube Music (via Cast), SHIELD simply delivers more YouTube content than competitive streamers.

Finding content on YouTube is also easier on SHIELD than any other streamer. Press the voice search button on your remote or say “OK Google and then simply ask what you want to see. With a single command, you can instantly watch your favorite content. Try “Play The Tonight Show on YouTube” or “Play movie trailers on YouTube.” You can even do a voice search for YouTube content from any screen without pausing what you’re currently watching.

So with SHIELD, you get not only the most YouTube content, but also the best YouTube experience.

“Ok Google, open YouTube TV.”

Three Months Free of Ad-Free Music on YouTube
