NBCUniversal to take G4TV off the air on November 30 | NBCUniversal sacará del aire a G4TV el 30 de noviembre


[EN]: The TV channel that brought shows to the gaming and tech audience coming to an end.

NBCUniversal told IGN the network will go off the air on November 30. The company has informed cable and satellite providers already of the removal of the TV channel. In recent years, NBCUniversal had plans to replace G4 with the Esquire network, but later decided to replace it with the Style network, leaving G4TV with repeats of old shows.

Since such shows as Attack of the Show and X-Play were cancelled early in 2013, the future of G4 has been in doubt, until recently with today’s announcement.

Many people should remember the earlier years of Tech TV (originally ZDTV) with shows such as Call for Help and The Screensavers, while G4 aired shows such as Cinematech, Cheat!, Arena, Electric Playground, Extended Play (later known as X-Play), and others. Both Tech TV and G4 merged to become G4TechTV and eventually was renamed G4TV.

NBCUniversal dijo a IGN que el canal va a salir del aire el 30 de noviembre. La empresa ha informado a los proveedores de cable y satélite ya de la eliminación de la cadena de televisión. En los últimos años, NBCUniversal tenía planes para reemplazar G4 con el canal Esquire, pero más tarde decidió sustituirla con el canal Style, dejando a G4TV con programas repetidos.

Desde que tales programas como Attack of the Show y X-Play se cancelaron a principios de 2013, el futuro de G4 ha estado en duda, hasta hace poco con el anuncio de hoy.

Muchas personas deben recordar los primeros años de Tech TV (originalmente como ZDTV) con programas tales como Call for Help y Los Salvapantallas (The Screensavers), mientras que G4 transmitía programas como Cinematech, Cheat!, Arena, Electric Playground, Extended Play (más tarde conocido como X-Play), y otros. Ambos Tech TV y G4 se fusionaron para convertirse en G4techTV y finalmente pasó a llamarse G4TV.
