DirecTV drops G4. DISH network is still better

directv drops g4

The G4 logo. Get ready for AotS!

According to Entertainment Weekly’s website, satellite television provider DirecTV has officially announced that they will stop carrying G4 TV in its library of channels.

While seemingly off-base, since there are a fairly large amount of people that love G4, if only for Attack of the Show, Web Soup, Ninja Warrior, and X-Play, DirectTV has decided to completely ignore fans and lovers just to keep up their bottom line. Really though, G4TV is a great channel that deserves a little respect.

This is the cause of the strange trend where television channels try to conform to the norm (or rather the phenomenon of TV stations where they have to ignore their soul and try to keep up with ratings while their good shows aren’t on the air).

This is terrible, especially since Attack of the Show, a unique show that is arguably their best program and my favorite, is on this network (also that show gets about 127,000,000 results on Google… just saying).

Thanks a lot DirecTV for ruining more. Go DISH network, go!

    Attack Of The Show is the best program there is, it’s a show for “all the stuff you care about”. But there is good news, DISH Network is keeping the channel and its on channel 191 in beautiful high definition. Now all we have to do is see if the new co-host can live up to Olivia Munn.

    Well Candace Bailey looks to be a worthy co-host, though it’s hard to forget about Sara Underwood!

    Hi there! That is definately sad to hear G4 has been dropped from DIRECTV’s channel line-up. I love watching G4 especially in HD! Good thing I get my HD channels through DISH Network. I get over 200 national HD channels. Which is more than any other TV provider. As a DISH employee, I can even tell you that DISH Network beats DIRECTV in Customer Satisfaction, Value, and Loyalty. You should really check out to see what I’m talking about.
