But now Reddit user Bubba_nosferatu has spotted NVIDIA's new Shield TV and Shield TV Pro at his local Best Buy, and going as far as buying one. He posted photos of both the new stick-like Shield TV that will cost $150 and the higher-end Shield TV Pro at $200.

The stick-like Shield TV is a big difference, like a super-powered Chromecast with an HDMI port and higher-end internals. Both the new Shield TV 'stick' and Shield TV Pro will have Dolby Vision Atmos technology support, 4K HDR support, and AI upscaling technology.
