G4 Is Being Closed Down Under a Year After It Launched

G4 television’s recovery is, tragically, reaching a conclusion under a year after it relaunched, as Comcast is pulling the plug on the network behind such series as Xplay, Attack of the Show!, and more.

Comcast Spectacor chairman and CEO Dave Scott wrote a letter to all representatives, saying G4 is being discontinued immediately.

“Team: As you know, G4 was re-introduced last year to tap into the popularity of gaming,” Scott wrote. “We invested in creating the new G4 as an online and TV destination for fans to be entertained, inspired, and connect with gaming content.

“Over the past several months, we worked hard to generate that interest in G4, but viewership is low and the network has not achieved sustainable financial results. This is certainly not what we hoped for, and, as a result, we have made the very difficult decision to discontinue G4’s operations, effective immediately. I know this is disappointing news, and I’m disappointed, too. I want to thank you and everyone on the G4 team for your hard work and commitment to the network.

“Our human resources team is reaching out to you to provide you with support, discuss other opportunities that may be available, and answer any questions you may have.”

G4 officially relaunched on November 16, 2021, and it had a plan to launch on “the channel lineups of Verizon Fios, Cox, and Xfinity TV,” as well as to stream on “Philo and collaborate with Twitch on a multi-year promotional and commercial partnership through G4’s official Twitch channel.”

This news seems to have come as a surprise, as G4 have Jirard the Completionist shared that a tweet about the G4’s closed down from Wario64 is the manner by which he figured out he lost his job. Jirard wasn’t the one to focus on, as Alex “Goldenboy” Mendez uncovered he was in “active negotiations” for his new agreement with G4.

Emily Rose learned about the news, as she was flying home from her grandfather’s funeral.

G4 was originally launched in 2002 and it stopped its programming in 2012 as it wanted to relaunch as Esquire Network.
