    Shield Consoles

    Has anyone got one? Do they let you play games from your PC on your TV? Or just PC games on the GRID service?

    It will stream games from your PC to your TV and from GRID, which is now called GeForce Now, to the TV.

    In order to stream from my PC, does my PC need its own wireless, or can it stream via a wireless hub that it's wired to (Ethernet cable)?

    My assumption is you just need to be on the same network. My suggestion is for you to read up on it and find out.

    Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.
    I've done some reading and it seems you can if you have an NVidia GTX GPU, 600 series or later.

    I will be looking at a different living situation in 3-4 months, and I want to be able to stream TV-friendly PC games downstairs to a 4K TV. The newest revision of the Shield allows for higher resolution streaming. If I understand this correctly, as long as I have a badass router I should be able to stream PC games at 1440p no problem.

    Plus, the Shield having access to basically all good major streaming apps and being able to side-load Kodi is putting it at the top for me as a TV/movie streamer.

    Anyone have thoughts or experiences since?
