  1. I have the new one and works great with Kodi runs very clean better than
    the old one .. only thing can’t resize the screen on your TV . but it worth
    it …

  2. Ive program 15 already never ask for more info been doing the same way as
    the old love the new ones they are great. I like my shield though no
    replacing that one

    • newtechevolution Hey, I love your videos dude. Can you tell me what you
      prefer to Firestick? In this video, you said you weren’t a huge Firestick
      fan.

    • Harold, I love the Nvidia Shield but I understand it’s a little pricey for
      some people this is where the firestick wins huge is on price. Appreciate
      you sticking around! hope this helps you decide on which device

    • +newtechevolution Thanks for the info and the quick reply. I’m pretty
      satisfied with my current setup; Kodi on my laptop hooked up through my
      main TV. If I decide to get a Kodi-capable streaming device though, I’ll
      look into the Shield. My brother-in-law, however, is looking for a
      streaming device, but I think he’ll prefer the price and simplicity of the
      Firestick. Thanks again man, and keep making those great videos.

  3. Yo Newtech what do you think about the system created by Cisco that will
    automatically Cut-Off Pirate Video Streams???? It pisses me off…….
    Whats your opinion on it???

    • newtechevolution I know the shields go’s for around 200 so when you run
      kodi on the shield is it a lot fast and is the quality better too I’ve been
      wanting to buy the shield but been hesitating to buy it because i wasn’t
      sure if it was a big difference from the fire stick. Can you give me a idea
      on why the shield is a lot better compared to the fire stick
