Works perfect on the shield for me and came in very handy over the home schooling when they had school hub
The rest of RTÉ is utter garbage but this isn’t the place for that

Is there anyway to get the NowTV on the shield.

I don't use it very often I sign up now and then to watch a couple of new movies but the NowTV sticks I have all overheat and the remotes are very laggy and eat batteries.

As far as I recall, you can sideload the app, but it won't work. Now TV is tied in with Roku, and Sky are pretty ardent about keeping it that way. I don't even think you can Chromecast Now TV from the phone app (open to correction there on that)

I'll have to try that later.

What app do you guys use to play local media, movies off a usb drive. I'd prefer one that only shows the folders with movies, and only show movies. Don't need it to be scanned for meta data or any of that.

Anyone had any luck with Stadia on their Shield? Worked okay first time on mine then completely froze my machine after that.

I got it working, have had quite bad lag with the couple of games I tried though, not sure why, my internet speeds/ping are good.

I can cast from NowTV on my android phone to the shield. But the movie has to be playing on the phone first before I cast. That works on. Thanks for the Tip.

If I cast before I play the movie it won't play it just spins the hourglass thingy. (Circles).

Works perfectly on mine. 1080p and stereo sound anyway. Even bought Red Dead Redemption 2 for it.
Don't have a 4k TV so haven't tested that aspect of it. My receiver can't decode the sound into 5.1 either. So I've got a pro account but only getting what someone on the free account would get. But I've had zero issues.

Might try again then. Is your stadia apk the latest version? Mine was freezing at the available title loading stage, then completely locking my shield.

It's not the latest. The 1st one I got about a month ago worked, so I was afraid to update. This is the name of the one I have - com.google.stadia.android_2.32.325394235-17504_minAPI23(arm64-v8a,armeabi-v7a)(nodpi)_apkmirror.com.apk

You'll need the nvidia shield app on your phone as well after you start a game for the first time. There is one screen than needs a mouse click to get by. But after that you don't need it (until you start another game).
