    This may not be the right forum to ask these couple questions, but I'll give it a shot.
    Can you load a browser on this?
    Any idea if it still comes with a $30 Google play store credit?
    Thanks.

    I would use Xplore file manager instead, I found ES to be annoying on Android TV. Otherwise, same idea. I use Google Drive to get the APK over to the device.

    I maybe back on this forum Tommaso as I'm not real familiar with sideloading.
    Thanks!

    There are lots of tutorials on YouTube. That's how I managed to do it.

    You can install chrome to your shield from a Web version of the Google play store. Shield TV is shown as a compatible device.

    Then install sideload launcher from the store and run chrome from that.

    Yes. You will want to use a keyboard to make it easier to surf the internet.

    I recently got an Nvidia Shield and have some concerns. Trying to play Zen pinball is difficult because of a lag in the response of the flippers. MLB Homerun Derby will load but all of the primary graphics (Players, crowd in the stadium) are blacked out making it almost impossible to play the game. Messages to the MLB app developer have gone unanswered. Any ideas as to what's going on?
