It is under Geforce Now but only supported games are available. The service is available in Sg. Currently it is free but soon there will be subscription. Well if that happens, you can still use the gaming pc mirror to the nvidia shield tv.

Playing the game from nvidia server.. Is that Geforce Now? Is that service available in Singapore though?

I'm tempted to buy nvidia shield to play at my office whenever lunch time or so...

Although it's at $280 IN Qoo10 right now. Quite expensive.

Thanks.. So what can i do to watch the channels like hbo,national geographic, discovery etc..?

Well, the legit way is to go with singtel or starhub.
Then theres iptv providers floating Ard the net

Hey man. You do not need to have to register to starhub or anything like that. You could just sideload (download) apps to watch netgeo hbo etc.
App such as mobdro will allow you to watch international channels example: disney channel, hbo, cartoon network etc

for legal route can use netflix / hulu / viu to watch tv series etc... for other route like paid iptv better check other thread that have more discussion on paid iptv / kodi... recently govt crackdown on several paid iptv apps...

My shield tv remote somehow consumes a lot of battery. After changing new batteries, it lasts only for a month or 2 max. Anyone else having this prob?

Another reason maybe that your home maybe noise, the remote mic detect voices. You may want to turn off the voice detection on your shield. It will prolong the battery life on your remote.

For info only, there is a report on using Youku TV version 酷喵影视 apk under Nvidia Shield TV by paying the 酷喵 VIP (not normal Youku VIP) and the report says no need VPN to access Youku content and 4k is good.

酷喵影视 apk is available from Dangbei market. You may need WeChat China Wallet or Alipay China Wallet or 3rd party to pay for the VIP. Right now it costs RMB199 per year and you get access to many movies without ads, 1080p HDR and some 4k as well. You get access to Chinese movies and western movies as well.

The same VIP can be used in Youku mobile version on your iPhone/iPad and Android phone/tablet where at most you get 1080p HDR.

I myself paid for the normal Youku VIP and I can access Youku content without VPN and the 1080p HDR movie looks good on my Huawei P20. The only thing which is a bit not so good is that I do not see Cantonese 配音 for Hong Kong movies but only Mandarin. Not so sure about the 酷喵 version.

Thanks much for sharing. May I know for the youku normal content, is there a wide selection of Western movies or dramas

Movies probably yes. Dramas too. But I am not really into western stuff other than those nice cartoon movies.

You can check the list by yourself to judge. You need to understand Chinese to proceed.

US dramas:
