The best way to get PIA on Nvidia Shield is to install our VPN on your router. That way, you cover all of the devices on your home network, including Nvidia Shield. A router only counts as 1 of your 10 available connections.
There might be a free VPN you can use with Nvidia Shield, but it's not a good idea to use it. Free VPNs usually have tight restrictions on critical features like data, bandwidth, and server locations. Worse still, a free VPN could collect your data and sell it to third parties.
PIA never limits what you do while connected to our VPN, and you can choose from servers in 91 countries. We also provide a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can try our VPN risk-free.
Yes, Netflix is compatible with Nvidia Shield. Using a VPN will enhance your Netflix experience on Nvidia Shield, especially if you choose PIA. We use 10 Gbps connections across our VPN server network to give you a smooth and stable streaming experience on Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, Disney+, and many more.
Try clearing the cache. Increasing your internet speeds doesn’t hurt either. Some ISPs throttle your speed based on how much bandwidth you use, and streaming eats up bandwidth pretty fast.
PIA masks your activity, so your ISP won’t know what you’re doing while connected to our servers. That means they can’t throttle you for connecting to on-demand services. PIA is one of the world’s fastest VPN providers, allowing you to stream seamlessly on Nvidia Shield.
Yes, Nvidia Shield is considered one of the better media boxes and has several powerful gaming features. Its optional controller offers dual vibration feedback, a hands-free mic, and a 60+ hour battery life.
Combine these perks with top gaming VPN features including unlimited bandwidth, lightning-fast speeds, and ad-blocking features to enjoy uninterrupted gaming for hours on end.
The new Google ad banner on Nvidia Shield’s homepage is annoying to say the least, often taking up the whole screen if you accidentally click on it. To remove the homepage ads go to > Settings on Nvidia Shield > Apps > See All Apps > Show System Apps. Then just find Google Play Services and disable the app.
Disabling Google Play removes the ad banner on the homepage, but it doesn’t remove intrusive ads for other apps. Enable PIA MACE in your VPN to block ads and other unwanted elements that can interrupt movie night and slow gaming speeds.
Our 30-day money-back guarantee offers you 100% satisfaction or your money back.
