Nvidia Shield TV 2017 is another late addition to the world of set up boxes. You can access Google Play as well as the game collection from Nvidia.
Fire TV stick with Alexa voice remote from Amazon is a small and compact device that is the size of a USB stick and can be plugged directly into the TV, and it’s great for people who don’t enjoy the sight of a black box next to the TV.
