The TV network G4, which was created by gamers for gamers, is finally coming back to the virtual world!
With an original run from 2002-2014, this gaming-focused network has been preparing for its relaunch all year, even co-hosting this summer’s D&D Live virtual event. Now, the channel has an official return date: Nov. 16.
Programming for G4 will be coming out of the west coast from a 24/7 broadcast studio in Burbank, California. Designed by the global architectural firm Populous, the studio is a collaborative workplace for content creators and a professional esports and gaming environment for creating new G4 content for all kinds of gamers.
New interviews and exclusive content will come out of the new space as well as old favorites, including Attack of the Show! Now the next generation of gamers can laugh along to the unscripted comedy series’ skits with veteran host Kevin Pereira. The video game review G4 original series Xplay is also coming back, with host Adam Sessler and a new crew of experienced experts in the industry giving their takes on the latest games.
For even more action, viewers can check out the esports comedy series Boosted, hosted by Titan Games’ Alex “Goldenboy” Mendez. The series is curated for esports gamers who want to keep up with the latest trends, news, and tournaments happening every week.
Other content on the network will include three Ninja Warrior (or Sasuke as it is known in Japan) tournaments that will air for the first time in the U.S.; exclusive broadcasts of ESL Pro Tour events, including the IEM Katowice 2022; and a Dungeons & Dragons Limited Series featuring veteran players and some celebrity favorites.
For the gamers who prefer watching their favorite G4 shows the traditional way, the channel will be available on Verizon Fios, Cox, and Xfinity TV channel lineups. For gamers who prefer everything digital, the network will also be available on the Philo on-demand TV platform. G4 has also signed on to a multi-year promotional and commercial partnership through its official Twitch channel for streamers to watch G4 content there, too. G4 fans can also continue to watch G4 content that already exists on Youtube and the brand’s other social media accounts.
