NBCUniversal Pulling The Plug On G4TV
Hope you got your fill of G4TV because it'll be gone by the end of the month.
As reported by IGN, the channel originally designed to cover video games, G4TV, will go offline on November 30. NBCUniversal says it's done after two years of uncertainty.
The network hasn't aired anything original in quite a while. Although everyone remembers "Attack of the Show!" and "X-Play," these were canceled back in 2012 and since then, the channel has just aired random shows like "Cops" and "Lost." They tossed a few movies on there as well but it really didn't have anything to do with video games anymore. Personally, I'm surprised G4 lasted as long as it did.
These days, nobody turns on the TV to get their gaming coverage fix; it's all online. Prior to the rapid Internet expansion of gaming sites and communities, G4TV was pretty cool. But it soon became passe and, in some ways, kinda painful.
