As a courtesy, you may want to amend your title to include Wanted To Buy (WTB), otherwise every person that currently wants one will click in here hoping you are selling one for less than the exorbitant retail price.

I got the 2019 Shield Pro from PB Tech. I can't remember the price but I think around $420 NZD.

I'm not sure why you want to buy a Shield Pro given the lack of additional context, but check out Moonlight Stream.

 

Depending on want you're trying to achieve, you may be able to do it via their (free) software instead of forking out for a Shield.

What additional context? He wants to buy unarguably the best Android based media player on the market! I want one too to upgrade my 2017 model. The AI upscaling alone makes it worth it - as soon as Amazon decide they can ship to NZ again I'll be doing it.

"Moonlight PC is an open source implementation of NVIDIA's GameStream, as used by the NVIDIA Shield, but built to run on Windows, Mac, and Linux."

 

- https://moonlight-stream.org/

 

The additional context == what the use case is for them wanting to purchase a Shield.

 

I'm not suggesting it's a good product or not, I have no opinion on the matter, I'm just throwing Moonlight Stream out there as I recently came across it and was able to stream to various devices across my home network using my existing hardware.

 

It may well not be helpful, but there's a chance it could save OP some $$$, hence why I replied.

Hi I need it solely for Android TV. From what I've read and as @Talkiet says, no other device comes close. I have an ATV 4K in the other room but lack of 4k YouTube and lossless Atmos support is why I need the Shield.

Just saw that, but at $47 shipping I'll wait until they have more normal pricing... I can't wait to throw this stupid Mi Box S into the rubbish though!
