Today, NVIDIA has received some great news for both existing SHIELD TV owners and anyone who plans to pick up the Android TV box.
Firstly, an update to SHIELD Experience Upgrade 7.2 rolls out to SHIELD TV. The update supports Amazon Music on SHIELD TV so you can stream tunes with either the Prime Music subscription that comes with an Amazon Prime account or premium Amazon Music Unlimited service.
The update also provides support for 5.1 audio on YouTube, as NVIDIA says that SHIELD TV is the first streaming media player that offers this feature. You can now turn on automatic updates to make it easier to update in the future, customize the quick settings, and use SMBv3 when you connect SHIELD TV to an NAS or PC. There are lots of other solutions and improvements too and you can read about them all here.
