Hulu says they have no plans on updating the Android TV app because of such a small market share- ironically it would take little work for them to modify the Fire TV app to work, why they don't is a mystery.

The Shield TV is really integrated into the Google infrastructure- so any Google Assistant enabled device/speaker etc works great. Not sure why Best Buy is giving away an Echo with this.

It should definitely help. The Tegra chip in the Nvidia Shield TV can handle pretty much everything you throw at it. I used to use SPMC (a fork of Kodi specifically designed for Android TV) and it would play anything I throw at it without an issue.

I use an app called MrMC now (another fork of Kodi that the guy who developed SPMC moved over to develop for) and it works fantastically well.

I'm about to switch over to Plex and, from what I can tell, the Shield can direct play/direct stream most media and supports hardware transcoding with a wide range of media.

Well, as far as snappiness and speed goes, an S905x with 2GB, for around $35-45 is much snappier than the stick, but most of these boxes aren't on the approved HD streaming list for many online services.
The S912 is a little faster, pricier but a little unstable. Better for games though. Don't know about any of the RK boxes like the RK3288, etc. -Never had one.

Now the shield is obviously the fastest, and stable of the bunch. Primarily more apparent in games, and emulation, or whenever you have many apps open, and need that extra gig of ram. (3GB vs 2GB) ((1GB on your firestick)) (((Well the newer firestick that was just released has more))).
Anyways, the Shield can't emulate Wii games, and many PS2 games well, let alone PS3 games. That is, if you are emulating your own roms.
There are exclusive games and ports though, that are made for the shield, and are great.
Also, you can pay a monthly fee, and play many games on their library:

Bestbuy will have the shield with controller for $160. Is the controller worth the extra 20 bucks, or should I just use a Xbox one controller ?

Holy crap, this isn't even YMMV at BB. I'll be paying about $9 more than my Target order but I'll get a free Echo Dot.

I use my wire 360 controller, but hear that the One controller works as well.
Don't have a shield controller, so I can't say. With many, it's a preference, whether they use a PS4, One, Shield, or some other controller.

depends on your situation. i don't use mine for gaming, so the controller just collects dust. if you only plan to game casually, I bet the xbox controller is fine.

yes if you plan on gaming some, I use for the retro gaming on shield tv. SNES, NES, sega, etc all work great.
