If you own this device, prepare to be amazed at what’s coming.

The NVIDIA Shield TV is about to get even better with a new feature that will allow users to stream PC games. This follows suite with industry moves. GeForce Now will include 225 PC games that will have streaming support at launch said to be “soon.” It will replace the old $8 GeForce service, which only let users play games they purchased independently on PC. On the new service, SHIELD owners can buy games directly through their SHIELD TV so it’s not necessary to have a PC for access to Steam or other gaming services. Users will be able to download any of the compatible games and store them in the cloud rather than take up space on their device.

GeForce Now is currently in the testing phase and costs nothing to try out. Once it becomes available to the masses via an app, it’ll come with a monthly cost presumably higher than $8.
