yup, good tip
USD23.81 amazon global air
SGD12.17 ezbuy standard ship

probably longer wait, but cheaper. Also for Amazon, it’s a domestic sale if you use ezbuy.

use 3rd party forwarder cheaper.

e.g ezbuy charges S$3.99 for 500g.

Did the same last week when they still have stock. But encountered the cannot be shipped due to location issue. Contacted their helpdesk and was told that it can be shipped to SG, and they will check with their HQ export dept. I didn't want to wait because I know very well there is a communication breakdown between Amazon US and their hd in India. (Very BAD experience with them before)

Nice. Thanks for sharing. Any speed improvements that you noticed? Faster app loading etc. How do you find the new remote? Nicer to use?
New remote tons better than the old one but use it in combination with the official appstore remote (has track pad and keyboard).

Interface also faster than the old shield when navigating menus and apps.

Also network access to the shield's internal storage (when transferring files from my Samsung mobile to the shield) is stable and works smoothly unlike the older shield (was a bit finicky in the past).

Wanna get the new Nvidia Shield TV Pro 2019 with 2 controllers.
Any lobang? 11.11 or Black Friday? I got contacts in US flying to SG.

Is the controllers old one? Or new version?
Or any other recommendable controllers to game with?

SingTel Cast Learning Plus is at S$5.9 per month, not bad for kids. You can take a look.

There are other SingTel Cast packs you can take a look. Now they open quite some packs for non-Singtel customers.

SingTel Cast app works for Nvidia Shield TV.

why live tv?

it is better to use VOD to watch kids programs and movies. you can select when and what to watch.
