    Nvidia Shield vs FireStick

    All,

    I do not know if this is the best spot to be posting this but here it goes.

    I currently use Kodi on my Amazon FireStick for streaming such as Netflix, Hulu, Crackle, and Prime. I have noticed at times that the FireStick will start to lag and chug along even with streaming over my NAS.

    I have been looking into getting the means of getting sports streams into my FireStick so I can finally cut the cord as it were from my cable company. The FireStick looks to support only a handful of sports applications that came with it pre-loaded.

    I was doing some reading and while the Nvidia Shield is superior to the FireStick in overall hardware and has better app support due to it natively being Android TV, is the price of entry worth it?

    I mean I spent $40 on my FireStick and the Shield is going to be about $300 due me liking the idea of having the Pro version.

    I don't mind tinkering with the FireStick but it seems like a good portion of my performance issues would vanish with the better hardware.

    Has anyone owned both and could give some feedback?
