A 24 hour gaming channel that was created in 2002. G4 stands for four generations of games: text, sprites, polygons, and textures. Or it could also stand for 4 different game platforms: personal computer, console, handheld, and arcade. Teleivision Programming was extremely mediocre until 2004 when the network was bought out by Comcast (Cable Provider) and combined with the 24 hour Technology Channel TechTV (formerly ZDTV). At that point all the employees of TechTV were fired and replaced with younger hipper nerds from G4.
