Still On the Fence On Which Media Streamer to Buy?

Here's why the Apple TV 4K may be the next big thing for some cord cutters in the future.


Nvidia SHIELD today's top Android TV streaming device is Apple TV's closest competitor. If the rumors are to be believed, support for the SHIELD may stop in several years. Nvidia may have moved on to AI applications and cease to update the SHIELD TV any longer. 

This was posted in the AVS Forum earlier this year:

"AFAIK, Nvidia is not planning a new SHIELD product at this time and will likely only continue supporting SHIELD TV for another year or two. There has been no word in the dev circles I'm connected with that anything is in the pipeline and a report I read on Nvidia's finances from some time ago stated that the CEO closed the product development for SHIELD around the time Nintendo became interested in Tegra. They took a big loss from the Tegra SOCs because electronics makers in Asia chose Chinese/Taiwanese SOCs for their TV/set-top-box/phone/tablet products. The single purpose of the SHIELD products was to give Nvidia a showcase reference platform for their Tegra SOCs and every phone/tablet vendor that bought into the hardware several years ago, lost big money on their products because the Android software wasn't where it needed to be and the media-centric SOCs from MediaTek and other big names in Asia quickly became competitive with what Nvidia was putting out, so Tegra R&D resources have been diverted to AI applications, with a focus on automotive and security uses that will use the computing power of the GPU. Given that, other than the obvious "Big D***!" GPU that Nvidia brings to the table, they really have nothing to offer anyone looking for an SOC to use in Android devices, though the SOC is a great fit for such applications. Having played DOOM 3 BFG on the SHIELD TV, I can say that I'm sad to see the ship sink, but it's a matter of market share, which Nvidia simply never got with their Tegra chips and the fact that Android devs did not bother to update the bulk of Nvidia SHIELD portable/tablet apps for the SHIELD TV's Android TV OS really didn't help Nvidia's bottom line at all. Perhaps the success of the Nintendo Switch will change some minds in the next year, but I would not be hopeful about any further SHIELD products materializing."

While we can't confirm this is NVIDIA's true intentions and really hope this does not happen because in our opinion, the SHIELD TV is one of the best Android TV boxes ever to reach the market. There is always the possibility that this could be true.

If the SHIELD was ever discontinued, where does that leave those looking for a powerful media streamer?

The Current Apple TV 4K is even more powerful than the Nvidia SHIELD.

For a long time, nothing could touch the SHIELD in performance. That is until Apple released their 4K Apple TV Model with an A10X Fusion processor.

Between the Apple TV, SHIELD TV and Roku Ultra, currently three top of the line media streamers from three great companies. The Apple TV 4K boots up much faster and currently has the fastest CPU.

Apple TV No Longer Quite As Closed As It Once Was

While apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, DirecTVNow can now easily be found on the Apple TV.

Early on the Apple TV was once the number one most popular media streamer. When Roku came along with their more open platform this quickly changed.  Now the tables may be turning once again.

While Roku was once the most open media streamer, recently they have been very busy tightening up their platform and closing down their platform, by only letting their users watch content from legal sources and removing any apps that link out to pirated content on the Internet. 

Apple TV on the other hand was once known as the most closed media streamer has of late been taking a more light-handed approach.

Several IPTV players are now available for download from the Apple App Store. Yet now on Roku, not a single IPTV channel is available on their platform any longer. This is forcing these users to seek other alternatives and media streamers.

Roku still offers many private Adult channels which can't be found on Apple TV. For adult content, Roku is still one of the best media streamers available. While you can cast adult channels to Apple TV, Roku lets you watch porn directly from a long list of hidden private adult channels on their platform.

With the FireCore Infuse 5 App,  the Apple TV 4K may just become one of the most sought-after media streamers if Nvidia ever stops supporting the SHIELD TV. Sure, other Android TV boxes will still be popular, but their interface is still clunky compared to the Apple TV which has an even-nicer user interface than Roku. Apple TV also has no ads on their home screen like on Roku and it lets you organize your apps into folders which still is also missing from Roku.
