Best Kodi Builds for the Nvidia Shield

The Nvidia Shield is by far the best device for Kodi, with it having the best hardware available compared to the Amazon Fire Stick, Raspberry Pi or Roku. It also uses Android’s powerful operating system, capable of running other applications such as Netflix, Amazon Video, Twitch, YouTube, DailyMotion and much more.

Although what stands out about the Nvidia Shield is how simple it is to install Kodi. It can be found in the Google Play Store and installed without all the hassle you have to go through on the Amazon Fire Stick. Kodi will also automatically keep itself updated to the latest version of Kodi V17 Krypton or Kodi V18 Leia.
