As reported by Deadline, Comcast has announced they will be shutting down their G4 TV revival network a little less than a year after its launch.
Many employees took to Twitter, revealing that they learned of the closure after Deadline obtained an internal memo before it was sent out. This follows reports from September in which large quantities of the network’s staff were laid off to reduce its dwindling finances.
G4TV started as TechTV in 2002 and went off the air in 2014. A television hub for all things gaming and nerdy, the channel is loved by the generation of gamers who grew up with it. Its return last fall had many excited, especially with the revealed involvement of G4TV alumni, including Adam Sessler and Kevin Pereira. Launching as a digital network that gamers could watch on YouTube & Twitch, it brought back channel staples Xplay, Attack of the Show, and Arena, as well as new shows and stars.
The revival launched in 2021 to a mixed reception.
Our condolences to those who lost their jobs. The iconic network will be missed, and we hope for the best for those who were involved.
