Fuzzy : G4: The TV Is Now Unplugged

UndergroundRevolution : The channel launched in April 2002... we can round that up to 13 years. The Pong game started to shrink at 1:3 - 13. The game stopped being visible and audible at 6:7 - 6+7=13. Cleverrrrr...

STICH666 : RIP G4 and TechTV. If only they didn't try to turn you into Spike TV Jr.  COPS COPS COPS COPS Cheaters Cheaters Cheaters Campus PD Campus PD Campus PD AOTS Xplay

MrWarners14 : This is depressing in so many ways.

YaBoyPsycho : Man I couldn't wait to go home every day and watch another episode of x-play and Attack of The Show. I miss it so much.

Derpurs Machinest : they opened the channel this way and I'm damn glad they ended it this way

ThatOneShyguy : Ow ... right in the childhood ...

The Trash Child : >We're here every night! Not anymore... ;~;

jackmagicdotcom : Great send off. Ironic that (1.) Morgan said "we're here every night" and that (2.) the last show on G4 was a 2003 TechTV repeat.

Randy Walters Jr : G4Rewind.com hosts a large archive of several TechTV and G4TV programs. Although, currently they are trying to rebuild their servers.

turbohusque : I give the final broadcast of G4 5 howling, lamenting wolves in the Castlevania countryside...out of 5.

SpooferJahk : Rest in peace G4, your ambition is survived by all the crazy video game media on this glorious internet of ours... and in Canada apparently. On a different note, if you go to the official site it feels like a strange wasteland since it still has GTA V's announced release date in The Feed section. It's already appearing in a relic state which is surreal to say the least.

superkeegan9100 : I'M AT COMIC-COOOOOOOOON!!

SoftBank47 : As great as that send-off was, I can't help but feel it was condescending. It was kinda like they were saying, "hey, remember this? This is what we USED to be about! Bye! Get your Cops reruns someplace else!"

dannytheman1313 : At least it does me well to know that the last thing they played was a show that originated on tech tv.

lawlerzwtf : Dam onion cutting ninjas are at it again

Bourne evoL : I remember finding this channel by exploring directTV's channels when I was 11 years old.  seeing a show called "X PLAY"  and being curious. THey were talking about Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg, then next was CHEAT.  It was so mindblowing to see stuff about video games on TV when I was that young.   The monster that this channel turned into, wasn't always like that.  It's sad to see a childhood thing go away, but I'm happy to see the shithole that this channel became dead.

R. W. Mendez : Damn it. I cried.

Mangantonio Bravo : 12/31/14 Never Forget

WeepinnWillow : My biggest memory of G4 is watching Ninja Warrior reruns, and looking back i'm ashamed of myself for not watching more.

noideac : even though G4 has been pretty much dead since like 2008, this is still pretty sad. Least the last thing they showed was a classic episode of X-Play.

Derek : You choose the SD feed, I'm glad that you did.

MrRyan2582 : R.I.P. G4. You will be in our hearts forever. We mourn as we have lost our only gaming channel. Hopefully there is another channel in the near future that is like G4.

Andx56 : Rest in peace TechTV, G4TV.. So many memories with this channel I remember watching it a whole lot back in summer 2009 when I didnt have any consoles so I relied on the channel to crave my gaming hunger.

razorknight92 : Adam had so much more hair and yet... still so little.

B Andrews : I've only learned one thing from this:  the "best" way to keep people watching your network is to let it die very, very slowly.  Just let the years go by, the original programs expiring until the network becomes a venue for syndicated reruns of shows you can already see without cable or satellite and then, eventually, is reduced to nothing but a shrinking game of Pong and a blip on the screen with the sound of a Game Boy behind it.  So long, G4. In reality, I haven't seen it since I dropped Dish and got DirecTV... 4 years ago.  Didn't really miss it either, but it's truly a shame how they tortured the tens of people who loved the channel and wanted the old stuff back.  Of course, it never happened.  But hey, if you have hair like a guy in the '60s, a beard like a mountain man, and wear Yosemite Sam-sized tight pants, Italian suits and ugly sweaters, there's always Esquire Network!

XelleldIsWeird : Just a little fact for those who didn't know, the host from Attack of the Show saying "I'm at Comic Con!" is supposedly a reference to how Comic Con is often called nerd heaven, and the host saying that is representative of G4 having died and gone to nerd heaven.

Poison : Although I do feel G4 really went downhill in the last half of the 00s and sadly kinda stayed that way into the new decade (oh they still had some notable shows like Code Monkeys and Attack of the Show, but much of what I turned in for during the PS2/Gamecube/Xbox generation began fading to the point that ironically one of the only video gaming shows they still had was a show they acquired from TechTV), I will say it is something of an end of an era to see the channel gone. G4 was a channel that really helped to define the sixth console generation for me (as I said above, the PS2/Gamecube/Xbox years), and I have to say thinking back to those early years is making me feel like playing something on one of those systems for old times sake. One reason why G4 was a big deal for me at the time is because my parents didn't have high speed internet back when G4 was still pretty new, so G4 was the best way for me to see new game footage and news more quickly, and I got to see the footage on the very TV I'd be playing those games on.

Tim Henson : Where am I going to get my 4 hour programming block of Campus Police now!?

frylock456 : damn, I remember when my family first got direcTV when I was in like, middle school. I was watching tv by myself one night and was just manually flipping through all these hundereds of channels we had never had before, as there was nothing good on on the few channels I regularly watched. I came across random gameplay playing on that show Filter and my jaw hit the floor as I continued to watch and realized this was a channel dedicated to gaming. I continued to watch the rest of the night until it began playing informercials. all those shows were so awesome, Cheat!, Filter, x-Play, that show where Tommy Tallarico and that other guy reviewed games, etc. I never really got into attack of the show and G4TV.com right away but I warmed up to them eventually. I just wish they could have kept up with quality programming. Instead they cancelled a bunch of good shows and started showing nothing but reruns of dumb shit like Cheaters and Cops. Cheaters by the way fucking trolled me when I first saw that show title on the channel guide. I thought it was a show about cheat codes and guides for games like that show Cheat! was. I was royally disappointed when it ended up being a show about cheating spouses. Well anyways, R.I.P. G4. They had a good thing going at first, I don't know why they fucked it up soooooo bad in the end....

Fred Noonan : What a damn waste. God Bless everyone who made G4 such a lovable program for so many years...

TheSonOfAGunFrom410 : Next time don't make your channel 90% cops and cheaters.

Julian Buttrey : I miss this channel I hope they bring it back sometime there's nothing good on tv

Patrick Corpuz : Man, I 'membered back in my 5th to 7th grade years watching G4. We used to watch G4 as a teenager where it shows some best titles for the PS2 and Xbox that made me buy those games for that console. When G4 transformed into a Spike TV clone, I stopped buying video games as G4 no longer showed video game-releated shows anymore. Right now I'm a PC gamer because I watched every Youtube videos that shows that PC gaming was better than a console. The first show I watched on TV when I first got a cable was Cheat with Cory Rouse.

Semaj Jarrett : if it wasn't for DirectTV....

Jimmy Campbell : Yeah, it's goodbye, all right. Goodbye forever, G4. I just hope a new video game channel will someday surface on TV.

Dr. Doak : I won't ever forget getting cable for the first time in over 10 years, back in 2005. I won't forget turning the tv on channel 354 on DirecTV, and watching a review of Batman Begins on Xplay. It was amazing.

WakkoPlaysGames : Liek if u cri everytim

Knouffy : I saluted it as it left. It went down fighting with what it had, but what it had was absolute garbage vomited on it from some jackasses in suits who wanted another SpikeTV. Goodbye, old friend. I'll always remember you.

Meet the Sess : And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest

Im_Panayotis : I remember loving g4, watching judgement day, screensavers, x-play. then later, ninja warrior (the original), codemonkeys and attack of the show. than after a while i just kept hoping for some thing good to come one, only to be disappointed by more reruns of cops. I just wondered why is it even on at this point, eventually directv stopped providing g4(even before they went off the air) seeing this though is kinda soul crushing.

Alfredo Gonzalez : I loved G4 and its gaming programing

Baar Bear : To me, this was a mercy killing.  Tech TV used to be a great channel and had  programming catering to gamers and nerds of all ages.  The merger with G4 changed all that by beginning to skew programming toward the younger gamers while leaving us older gamers out in the cold.

LegitSi : This was the channel that recorded Yuuji Urushihara's entire run and first total victory on SASUKE in Japan.

User1234 : G4 and Xplay with live forever in my heart.

Justin Shea : I only known about G4 from the one segment on Attack Of The Show featuring Smosh. But it sad to see the channel go so soon.

JonathanDP81 : The whole network was yet another great idea poorly executed.

Soul Extract : I had a lot of good memories of G4 back in the day i remember crisis 2 came out and saw the game review it was awesome to see all the game reviews i enjoyed i'll miss g4

HylianSpirit : Sure, G4 lived out its final days without much dignity... But that was sadder than I anticipated...

Bradley productions -O : I miss Ninja warrior so bad...
