Nvidia’s New Game Streaming Service Is Twice As Fast As PlayStation Now

Launching in North America alongside the Shield Tablet software update next Tuesday, November 18, Grid allows owners of the Shield Tablet and Shield Portable devices to stream select PC games from Nvidia’s launch library. The service will come to Western Europe in December, and Asia next year. “When you download the new Shield Hub update there will be a new tab there called Grid Games,” said Phil Eisler, general manager of Grid Gaming. “In addition to playing your Android games, and any local GeForce games, you’ll be able to connect to our cloud servers and stream a library of games that we have there.” […] “We’re thinking probably along the Netflix line with sort of an affordable subscription fee for a bundle of games,” Eisler said. “But probably Netflix Plus, because people also want to play brand new content so you’ll be able to top up with new titles that have just been launched.” – Brandin Tyrrel,IGN

The Best Media Streaming Devices

Chromecast isn’t as self contained as an Apple TV or Amazon Fire TV, but it’s so much cheaper, and allows unfettered access to YouTube that you won’t find on any other device. Ever notice how some YouTube videos can’t be watched on a phone or tablet, or on the Xbox or PlayStation’s native YouTube app? That’s because, for one reason or another, YouTube has blocked access to that content on mobile/game consoles. Casting from a laptop allows you to sidestep that […] Amazon Fire TV is Amazon’s answer to the Roku 3 and the Apple TV. It has one killer feature that sets it apart from the pack: voice search. Because nobody likes an on-screen keyboard, it makes it simple and even a little fun to search for movies and TV to watch. […] It’s really not worth buying unless you have Prime, but Prime is totally worth having. […] The Roku 3 isn’t the most stylish box on this list, but it has everything else going for it. Unlike every other company in this list (Apple, Google, Amazon) Roku isn’t in the business of selling episodes of anything or getting you to sign up for any sort of monthly subscription. It just wants to sell you a little purple box with a remote that plugs you into a huge library of video content, where every service is granted equal footing. – Alex Roth,IGN.com
