    Interesting. I'm gonna Google this "TV" and see what was so great about it, if anything...

    Hmmm... Google's gone retro. They have this "TV" thing, too. Verrrri interesting...

    No but seriously. Are you sure it's absolutely gone?! Like it didn't move channels or anything? I can't f*cking believe this.

    G4 went bye bye back when they switched it from TechTV. It got pretty bad once they started doing reruns of Cops! and Cheaters. Attack of the Show was always a mediocre version of The Screen Savers without Leo Laporte. Why does this matter? Because I hope G4 dies a horrible death after it became such a joke compared to what it was before.

    DIE IN A LAKE OF FIRE G4! :D:D:D

    I'll admit it wasn't the greatest channel of all time, but GameTrailers.com TV was awesome for me. I just always had it on DVR so I could watch from time to time. And I liked AotS... lol

    There is a glimmer of hope..

    From a thread on the G4 forums:

    'last night i tuned off g4 while it was playing back to the future, if i had known i wouldn't be able to see it the next morning, i probably would have kept it on all night. anyway i called direct tv and the agent i talked too siad, it was news to him, he was also a fan of g4 and had no idea what was going on, so he did a little research and said, its probably undergoing negotiations and will be back on direct tv later in the month. untill i see flyers or a new channel lineup saying G4 is no longer a part of direct tv i should be patient. he also told me to check blogs to see what was going on. as i hung up the phone i couldn't help but feel cheated and lied to, i think he was just trying to keep me with direct tv. because if g4 is really off direct tv, i'm switching to dish or optimum tv. G4 is my favorite channel. i can't live with out watching, Xplay, AOTS, Ninja Warrior, Effing Science or web soup. but does dish or optimum tv even carry g4? if any one has info on thoese two networks or if direct tv will be getting G4 back, please tell me!!!'

    She is so meh.

    That's right. I f*cking said it. lol

    Good luck terminating your Directv account. The cancellation fee is effin outragous. But trust me, you don't want to go there. Dish Network f*cking blows. But I can't tell you immidiately if G4 is on there. I will check with my mum, she has that garbage.

    I had watched that channel back when Chris Pirillo, Leo Laporte, Martin Sargent (guy was like a tech nerdy comedian), Morgan Webb (wasn't as annoying as she is now) were running most of the tech news portions. Once they switched it was hard to adjust to anyone after Leo, the dude is like a tech guru, it really was the coolest show about tech I have ever seen - yah the channel has hotter babes now, but I can't stand the queue card reading, and blank opinions on things.

    Probably the only redeeming factor G4 had left was X-Play because Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb know their S***, but I'm not sure if that show was still even on and they were still hosting.



    You never did or will get anything like this on G4.

    Never really been a fan of G4, but I have been watching Code Monkeys on Netflix lately. It's an okay show, either way I'm with Time Warner right now, soon to be Dish Network.

    Not that it matters, I really don't watch TV anymore.

    Sasuke and Kinniku Banzuke are what keep me watching G4. I miss x-play though.
