If you like the Apple TV interface, then you will probably love the SIO2 skin because it resembles Apple's interface and it somehow offers the same functionality. The developer for the SiO2 skin made this skin with the intention to put the least amount of clicks between you and the content you  want to watch, and i believe that he did a great job because you can start watching a new movie, or play a new song in no time. Because of that, you don't have the customizability options other skins have but keep in mind that SiO2 was created to be a minimalist and easy to use Kodi skin, so that's why it's on the list for the best Nvidia Shield TV Kodi skins 2017.

One of the best Kodi skins started as a mod for an older skin named Niamu, but because this one started to develop a personality of it's own, it needed a name of it's own. Enter BOX, the skin with 15 customizable Main Menus, 5 customizable Sub-Menus and over 35 widgets for them. Besides that, BOX allows the user to change the color accents for the skins making sure there is at least one color to match your preferences. The mouse and touch support is present, so you can use this skin on any device without the need to stick with only one input device. Without a doubt, Box is one of the best Nvidia Shield TV Kodi skins 2017 because of it's complete set of features offered in a beautiful package.

We continue our journey to find the best Nvidia Shield TV Kodi skins 2017 with the OMNI skin, which has it's main feature right in the name, because of it's omnipresent menus. This skins has some similarities to the Mimic skin but OMNI is more streamlined, and it lacks the number of customization options. The main focus for this skin is the main menu and mubmenu which are accessible from every window. By pressing left from the main menu, you get right in the submenu where you can go to another section of your Kodi player. OMNI skin has only the List and Wall view, so if you want other views you may need to look elsewhere, but for me, this is one of the best Kodi skins for Nvidia Shield TV because of it's simplicity and ease of use.
