The black month discount fever is slowly but surely taking over carriers, retailers and device manufacturers as diverse as T-Mobile, Cricket Wireless, Best Buy, HTC, and NVIDIA, with the last name added on that list offering a promotion bound to thrill both gamers and home entertainment addicts.

The Shield Android TV set-top box/microconsole usually costs $199.99, and in the entry-level package, you get a gaming controller included, but no TV remote. The latter accessory is priced at a separate $50, but for a limited time only, both NVIDIA and Amazon let you have it for free stateside.

Even better, Amazon charges just $175 on the bundle, mentioning nothing about an expiration date for the pre-holiday deal. Nonetheless, you should probably hurry and stay safe rather than later regret not jumping the gun.

Recently updated with GeForce Now integration for instant on-demand game streaming from the cloud, the NVIDIA Shield Android TV also provides 4K access to services like Netflix, YouTube or Plex. A powerful Tegra X1 SoC drives the gadget, with octa-core Cortex-A57/A53 CPU muscle and mind-boggling 256-core GPU capabilities.

Other top-shelf specs include 3GB RAM, 7.1 Dolby surround sound, a pair of USB 3.0 ports, as well as HDMI 2.0, Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 4.1, 802.11ac 2×2 MIMO 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi connectivity. Meanwhile, the remote isn’t very advanced, yet it sports a nifty microphone for Google voice commands, and looks fairly clean and straightforward to use.

Oh, and in case you’re willing to take a chance on the potentially malfunctioning 500GB data-accommodating Pro model, that one’s $275 on Amazon with the same complimentary remote bundled in.
