The Evolution Will Be Televised: SHIELD Now Carries Twitch Broadcasts

by Chris Daniel

We’re bringing Twitch, the leading social video platform and community for gamers, to the ultimate living room device.

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.

Twitch is the latest addition to SHIELD’s growing lineup.

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.

As competitors raise their bar, we continue to elevate our game.

We’ve given users more control of the living room by including a free SHIELD remote with the purchase of SHIELD Android TV. Starting at $199, you’ll get SHIELD, the SHIELD controller and the SHIELD remote.

Along with software upgrades that bring new features and functionality, a host of new apps – many among the most popular – have come to SHIELD Android TV since launch. From Game of Thrones to Wrestlemania, there’s something for everyone. And more great content is coming every day.

Many of the most popular apps have come to SHIELD Android TV since launch.

Included among the list of apps is the newest addition to SHIELD Android TV devices: Twitch. Whether you love to watch live gameplay or share your gameplay with friends, SHIELD is designed to give you the ultimate Twitch experience. It’s the only media streaming device capable of live broadcasting to Twitch, and now owners can also watch broadcasts of the games they love and chat with the players they follow.
