This week the folks at Google have ended their tenure with the first "Nexus" Android TV product, Nexus Player. They've taken the device down from the Google Store online and retailers - retailers we've seen, anyway - haven't had the device available for quite some time. Now comes the age of the 3rd-party manufactured Android TV products. Wait, you might be saying. Wait - didn't NVIDIA already make an Android TV device? Yes. Yes they did. They made the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV, a device that eclipsed any efforts any other manufacturer had or had planned on in the past year.
