Nvidia Shield TV Pro (2019) Unboxing!

Nvidia recently released an updated version of the Nvidia Shield TV and in this video I take a first look at the Pro version which comes in with a retail price of £199.99. This does make it one of the most expensive media streaming devices available, however it does come with plenty of extra features such as GeForce Now, NVIDIA GameStream, Dolby Vision and AI upscaling. A full review will be coming in the near future but first I decided to do an unboxing for my first impressions!
