The NVIDIA Shield is already one of the best Android powered TVs on the market and the latest update makes it even better. Now The SHIELD Android TV is working with Twitch, the most popular social video platform in the gaming community, right to the living room where it belongs.

In the company’s announcement NVIDIA states, “With today‚Äôs launch, SHIELD becomes the only media streaming device capable of live broadcasting gameplay to Twitch and offering owners the ability to also watch Twitch broadcasts.”

Now players will be able to watch these broadcasts whenever they like, and they will be able to enjoy the streams and chat with the players they follow, all from the comfort of their couch.

Twitch joins an ever-growing list of popular apps coming to SHIELD Android TV. In just six short months, apps like CBS All Access, CBS News, CBS Sports, Disney Movies Anywhere, FOX News, FOX, FX Now, HBO Go, HBO Now, Kodi, PBS, Showtime, STARZ Play, UFC, USA and WWE have all come to the platform.

In a blog post the company explained the growing system stating, “When it was introduced, earlier this year, SHIELD Android TV was the only device capable of streaming 4K content from Netflix and YouTube, enabling advanced gaming with GeForce NOW, and allowing play, natively, of hit franchises like Doom and Half-Life. ”

NVIDIA added, “Since then, the premium media streaming device category has grown. While SHIELD still delivers best-in-class gaming and 4K performance, others are starting to offer 4K and more gaming options.”

Already one of the more popular tech-gifts this year, the NVIDIA Shield starts at $199 for the 16GB model. You can find more information on the NVIDIA Shield, including other models, pictures and specs on the official Amazon product page here, or by clicking the link below.
