Change your currency to SGD and you will see the pricing in dollars. Select Free Amazon GlobalSaver.

Your shipping address must be a Singapore address.

This is for the 16gb Shield TV only.

Both the 16 and 500gb comes with the wireless controller (the gamepad not the remote)

The wireless controller (gamepad) itself costs USD60.

The wireless REMOTE is optional at USD 50

Wow. Tested grid. Even on my Singtel 5ghz wireless lag is very occasional. Most apparent in fighting games like Street Fighter... On other stuffs like Batman lag is not noticeable. Gonna try Ethernet connection tonight. But so far impressed.

Gonna side load emulators for Dreamcast later and test.

YouTube 'chromecasting' capabilities is God sent. Easily able to watch YouTube (even iOS) on TV easily and control fast forward, etc. AOA and Apink never looked better on my big TV. They already looked good on my iMac 27 Retina. :D
Also able to 'AirPlay' my photos, music from my ip6+ by third party app. Using the lite version now. Forgot the name. Any advice for the best as I don't mind paying.

Android games like Asphalt8 works like a charm. No issues.

Still have some issues with my Gamestream. Troubleshoot tonight.
When that works, it's my SGD270 well spent!! Even now with all the free games on Grid, think the cost already wrote off.

For some reason..the selection on the google play store is limited.

What i did was to browse for apps on the web version of google play store:)

Sideloading shouldn't be an issue. But really nifty machine.

If only my Gamestream work.

finally got my unit after 2.5 weeks of delay from UPS. Anyone noticed the power adapter has the SG safety mark logo on it? Possible that some local distributor is planning to sell this in SG?

Hi guys,

Planning to buy this, but just wanna check two more things before clicking buy..

Netflix with MyRepublic Teleport (or VPN) can work?
TVMC (or XBMC or Kodi) works well ?

Thanks
