With the addition of the Apple TV app, Nvidia Shield users can access the Apple TV+ streaming service with a subscription, TV shows and movies purchased or rented from the iTunes Store, and content from Apple TV Channels.

The Apple TV app works with the built-in Google Assistant on the Nvidia Shield, allowing users to use "OK Google" voice commands to navigate directly to specific Apple TV+ shows or movies, control playback, and more.

The Apple TV app has been rolling out to a wide variety of platforms in recent months, including the PlayStation, Xbox, and Roku. The app is also available on the "Chromecast with Google TV" dongle, which is also powered by the Android TV platform.

The Nvidia Shield is nothing short of an outstanding piece of tech. I had been laughing off all the so-called upscaling features for years - until the Shield made me a believer.

Looking forward to the day Apple will be welcoming Nvidia back on board.

Nice, now I just wish I had the newer Shield with Dolby Vision support but I can't justify upgrading just for that. Maybe come the next model I'll upgrade. Though I do like the AppleTV I just need Plex bitstream support so I feel stuck with the Shield line.

Nvidia Shield is wayyyy better than Apple TV, upscale and processing power are insane, you have to try it to believe it! And support is top notch and last for many year, like they do for their GPU or Apple for their hardware !

if you have a 4K OLED TV, Apple TV "4K" is very average at best if you want top visual quality for your 4K HDR Dolby content that truly exploit your high end TV vs Nvidia Shield, for real
