Less than a year after launch, G4TV has officially shut down.

According to Deadline, a source sent them an email that Comcast Spectacor Chairman and CEO Dave Scott sent to G4’s workers, which you can read it in full below:


As you know, G4 was re-introduced last year to tap into the popularity of gaming. We invested to create the new G4 as an online and TV destination for fans to be entertained, be 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 the 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.

Thank you again for all of your hard work for G4.


Dave Scott
Chairman and CEO

This is a little confusing because it seemed like G4 had been doing really well with their ratings. But it also seems like there could be some stuff that Dave Scott is not mentioning about this sudden shutdown.

But with it shutting down so suddenly, the TV and streaming service channels could also get shut down soon. But we will just have to wait and see what happens next.
