G4 Will Relaunch on Twitch and Cable TV Next Month

The gaming and fandom network G4 will be making its return after a seven-year hiatus.

Originally launched in 2002, shows on TV network focused on video games and gaming culture. G4 underwent a series of mergers and acquisitions in the early aughts before ultimately shutting down in 2014.

Last year, Comcast announced that it would be reviving the network and since then, G4 has started streaming beta content on Twitch, YouTube and Twitter in preparation for the relaunch.

On November 16, G4 will be newly available on channels offered through Verizon Fios, Cox, Xfinity TV and Philo. The network will also “collaborate with Twitch on a multi-year promotional and commercial partnership,” according to the press release.

G4 said that programming will be “produced and delivered through a first-of-its-kind 24/7 broadcast studio,” both reviving beloved legacy shows and introducing new additions.

Kevin Pereira will return as the host of the geek culture segment Attack of the Show! and Xplay will once again see Adam Sessler review video games but this time around, with more explorations into modern gaming technologies, including virtual reality and mobile games. Among the new shows are an esports comedy called Boosted and a limited series on Dungeons & Dragons featuring celebrities such as Jack Black and Tiffany Haddish.

More information about distribution, programming and content partnerships will be announced closer to the network launch.
