Goodbye G4TV

G4TV as it currently exists is going to be going away and will be "rebranded" early next year. G4TV replaced the old TechTV channel and focused almost entirely on video games and slowly changed into a Tech/Geek/Video Game channel that apparently no one watched. Kotaku has the full story and all the details.

According to a report on Variety, G4 - one of the only TV stations in the world with a "geek" mandate - will be "rebranded" early next year, resulting in a change of focus and possibly a change of name as well.

In other words, it'll be an almost entirely new/different channel.

NBCU, the station's owners, are reportedly looking at turning it into a TV version of GQ, ditching the nerd focus in favour of something more "modern male".
