The satellite TV provider DirecTV has dropped the G4 Network after a string of failed negotiations with G4's parent company Comcast. (which, probably not coincidentally, is one of DirecTV's biggest competitors)
hasnt been very good almost every time i switch to it Cops or ninja warrior reruns that and Oliva Munn hasn't been on AOTS that much oh well maybe shes working on another cameo appearance in some movies sad for directv users but im sure there still be able to access almost everything from the G4 website
yeah everytime i turn it there, it's either cops or cheaters. i thought that was supposed to be a gamer chanel
G4 has been going down hill since they took over TechTV. The channel is garbage. I don't miss it at all.
Here in Canada you get The Office reruns, campus PD great latenite cartoons and your typical G4 shows, glad this is not affecting Canada because G4tech is a great channel. And olivia Munn has become a regular corespondent on the Daily Show.
Cops, Cheaters, Campus Police, Ninja Warrior and etc. Its just like what happen to MTV when it was all about music, now its all just reality shows and less music.
not in Canada no, I guess to sum this up, G4 sucks in the state? because I have no idea what you are all talking about. The main programming is gaming and tech related.
What's G4? :D Screw TV.......
we have "Reviews On The Run" & "EP Daily" which are Canadian based shows. That's the only reason why I still have it. However, it's still a channel I hardly watch.
yea gotta love victor lucas!!
Interestingly, there are more and more channels outside of G4 that are carrying brand new episodes of EP Daily/Weekly and Reviews on the Run in Canada. It's gotten to a point where I don't even watch G4 anymore since it's always behind on news and has next to no content you can't already get way earlier on GameFAQs.
She spends most of her time on the Daily Show now. Miss her. Only time I ever really tune in anymore is for Gadget Pr0n, other than that...I catch most of their stuff online.
...she IS great on the Daily Show!
It's like I'm really on GameFaqs right now.
Garbage channel now. I liked it when they had "Arena" and "G4TV.com" They would always talk about gaming. I remember they were debating best game of E3 2004. Half Life 2, Halo 2, etc. The good ole' days. It was an awesome channel. Now it blows anal warts. Blow it up, we need a new true 24/7 gaming channel.
Completely agree. G4TV needs a makeover
G4 who watch that craptastic show any more?? like bulletproofvess SAID: reruns of cops an ninja warriors, cheaters. only time G4TV is exciting when E3 airs other than that why bother?
You're better off just going to their site. They have more gaming stuff on there than on TV. Do they have much gaming on TV now? I rarely watch it anymore.
I agree with this guy. They didn't have any good shows. They should get rid of G4 and bring back Tech TV. That channel was tight.
munn's been doing skits for the daily show
And DirecTV users are at a lost? No not at all. Only good thing is Adam Sessler. G4TV has turned itself into a show for a bunch of bros to talk about porn and the latest Apple product.
Well I did DVR Xplay, but never watched the channel otherwise.Not counting E3 highlights and other "special events". G4 isnt available in any form in my area now.Local cable doesnt carry it. Oh well... EDIT.I feel like a idiot. I have Dish Network now, so I guess i'm still good.
Just saying.. "a show for a bunch of bros to talk about porn and the latest Apple product" makes you a special person, and as bad as the "bros" you label.
G4 has been worthless since 2005
Glad I don't have Direct TV.
yep, the issue here is DirectTV failing to keep channels. they almost lost Fox recently also. Tough times are ahead for DirectTV.
I'm a Directv customer Shield, and the only the I want to do is write a letter to Directv and thank them.
Last time I checked with my channels, nothing of value was lost...
Lol, Losing FOX and G4 sounds like they actually know what they're doing.
LOL, IT DOES
Yep, they sure do know what they're doing. Ripping their customers off! I bet DirectTV customers who believe that dropping channels (crappy or not) from their service is okay are the same ones that are paying $60 an incomplete game and then drop another $30 for all the DLC to complete the experience. -__- Fizzle!
@Shield As stated before, when I look at the channel packages, I don't see anything of value lost. Also way to be a generalized ass....
E3, and that's it.
You have internet. You can still see E3. Without random ads.
confirmed g4 cancelled
I'd take Morgan over Olivia, and That other wench from IGN any day.
Morgan Webb has never touched a real game in her life..... She's immature and unprofessional. She won't be missed.
do you stand outside her house watching what she does on a daily basis?
Ok, now here's my opinion - Olivia Munn killed Aots. Alison > Olivia. I cringe whenever I see her on Aots. Her jokes just falls flat - and do know that it's scripted, but she just isn't funny. Alison should've been the co-host. - "In my opinion".
G4 has been crap for years. they have barely any VG content anymore The only thing good was their coverage of E3. Other than that, it was just Cops, Cheaters, Ninja warrior, or Campus Police. the network sucked and as DirecTV stated, they have been the lowest in ratings. G4 cannot survive on Comcast alone.
What happen to code monkeys? That was the best show on G4. Anyway AOTS and xplay should be on Spike or Syfy.
XPlay on syfy? O.o
Games tie into Science Fiction kinda....
Fuckers. Glad they ruined Tech TV for nothing. G4 sucked back then and it still sucks now. It's a clone of Spike TV. Tech TV will forever remain in my heart.
It's come to that point in time where either G4 needs to change or it will be getting dropped. I love G4 but it's easy to see why it's got dropped. I don't blame direct tv. Instead of G4 getting us to petition, G4 needs to get its act together and turn back into a gaming channel. As of now it literally composes of SEVEN shows. Two of which are technology related. It's a shame and travesty that G4 refuses to adapt. Evolution lets us survive and G4 needs to evolve.
I miss The Screen Savers.
Xplay is run by racist, Japan-hating, pants-on-head retards, good riddance. The only thing I'll miss about G4 is Ninja Warrior.
I'll miss Adam Sessler, but he was the only person on the G4 Network to hold any validity. Good riddance to the rest. I miss the days with Machinima, Cheat had it's own show, and Xplay had good reviews....
I have to side with DirecTV on this one. G4 has no value. They only have two shows that live up to their name. Attack of the show and X-play. That's it. The rest is reruns of Cops, Cheaters and Campus PD or whatever. Where are the other Video Game,Tech and Geek related shows? Where's the retro gaming show? Where they just talk about retro gaming? Where's the show about comics? Where's the show about geek culture? The show about tech? How about a show where they review movies? Live up to your name damn it! While I don't like every show on the SyFy or History channel. They live up to their name for the most part. They don't have random shows to fill in the empty gaps from lack of original programming. Thankfully we have Youtube. Which sadly surpasses G4 in providing all the programs I mentioned.
They should try to restart ZDtv up again. ZDtv was even better then TechTV. They had more shows about the industry in general. TechTV was also good but thats when things started to change, they started adding younger host to their shows and I just found a bunch of them to be annoying. ZDtv was the best channel.
It's pointless to have a Tech show for helping people to use computers in this day and age, back in the early days of home computers and the Internet. It made sense. Nowadays we just google. G4TV is missing out on a great opportunity to be a channel that not only provides tech news, but features geek culture, gamers, gadget lovers. But fills a void on TV, as there would be no other channel like it. G4TV is the closest thing, but with only two shows and the rest being reality shit. It's pointless. Build the channel into something feasible or close down the channel. I'm surprised G4 has lasted this long.
lol the channel died years ago.... :(
DirecTV must not be blatant 360 fanboys like G4. They must roll with the triple. Them and Sony both are really pushing 3D.
while i do LIKE G4, i'm honestly not hugely disappointed in this. i'm spoiled to HD programming and DirecTv has never offered G4 in HD. so, i didn't watch it much. the ONLY time of the year i did spend a decent time watching it was during E3. hopefully, DirecTv and G4 will hug and make up by then.
I can't stand watching anything that isn't in hd on my hdtv guess it's a good thing I have comcast
This is just another step from removing its existence.
you mean COPS and CHEATERS TV?
what about AOTS and X-play!?
I use to watch G4 and TechTV all day long. I knew the channel was going to suck after the two merge, it only took them a year to remove TechTV from the name and another year to remove all TechTv shows with exception of X-Play then they removed all video game related shows except for X-play which was originally a TechTv show called Extended play before they changed the name. R.I.P G4TV 2002-2004,TechTV 1998-2004 and G4techTV 2004-2005. G4 2005-2010 I will not miss you because you ruined two good channels so goodbye hopefully being removed from Directtv will help them see their channel is slowly dieing and they need to go back to their roots and return to their old fanbase. Extended play http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I'm very excited to see G4 die. All I remember is morgan webb calling ps3 fans depressed and we should be happy to finally be playing a triple A game called killzone 2. As if metal gear solid 4 never existed along with uncharted, resistance, warhawk, etc. Soon after they awarded fable 2 with goty and defended it as we were all playing it wrong. Adam sessler was promoted to editor in chief, peter molynuex was offered to work with microsoft and since both were bought off they have no choice but to sink with the ship.
