This new update for the NVIDIA Shield TV comes with this new home screen that features a row of applications and games at the top. The Shield TV was released three years ago and continues to receive updates. Today, it has been announced that NVIDIA is rolling out the Android Oreo (8.0) update to the Shield TV.
So what's new in Shield Experience Upgrade 7.0? It was updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow and then Android 7.0 Nougat.
Think of it as being like the drawer of the Apple TV home screen that allows you to scroll through titles of the selected app. Clicking on a TV show or movie will automatically open the app and find the content, ready for binging. And, thanks to the device being linked to your Google account, it'll pick up on content that you've been watching on your smartphone too (on Android, anyway!). In one screen, you can watch live TV, stream media, access video-on-demand, and play games. Of course, this is all customizable so you can choose which channels you want to see and which ones you don't.

However, on closer inspection it became unclear what species it was, prompting state wildlife officials to take DNA samples. And its big floppy ears and shaggy fur were nothing like a common canine, officials said.
You can also assign "channels" as individual rows. If you still have a Nexus Player sitting around or if you've ever used a TV Guide in the past, you'll be familiar with the interface. Long-pressing the Select button lets you reorder them. Its similar to the experience you will find on a Fire TV box or Stick, or Xbox One, where programming on Netflix and other services get their own row of suggestions.
Aside from content browsing, the Shield Experience 7.0 Update provides an easy way to access your favourite apps and games.
While browsing through channels, navigate all the way to the left to move or remove them. NVIDIA has also worked with 3rd-party companies with this update bringing in support for Arlo cameras, Emerson Sensi, Ikea Tadfri, LG smart appliances, and Scenes support for Phillips Hue.
