Just says G4 now.
Web site addres chaned too. www.g4techtv.com now forwards to www.g4tv.com
RIP: TechTV... you will be missed.
Tagline says "video game television" too, expect The Screen Savers to probably be cancelled. Like it should be, it hasn't been the same for years.
Then the channel will be added to the list of other channels that I quit watching.
Hopefully Dish can use some clause in its contact with G4 to yank the channel. What a waste of bandwidth.
The problem is that Dish owns part of the channel as a minority investor.
Please replace the G4TV (Formerly G4TechTV/TechTV) with The Anime Network. This channel would be a good draw for adults 18-34, which is a prime demographic. I know of friends who would switch the DirecTV to get the Anime Network.
I thought anime network was VOD only, is it a full fledged channel now?
I'm going to miss Techtv also. Guess I have to find some other channel during Screensavers time.
Leo LaPorte said this would happen on his radio show at http://www.kfi640.com on weekends from 11AM to 2PM. He also said people from the old Screensavers are trying to break their contracts with Comcast.
Someone needs to get a new Tech channel on and hire those guys back that were originally on Call For Help and The Screen Savers.
I think a new computer channel needs to be launched. And I'd like to see DirecTV remove this channel and bring in three standard-definition channels to replace G4, CNN International, and Trio.
Leo never said they were trying to break their contract, I am in his chat room every weekend. Kevin Rose was on and said that he can't quit his contract that he will continue to push tech content on TSS.
TSS has alot of gaming content now and some ET type of content but there is still tech and computer stuff not nearly enough though, I miss the old TSS.
Yes, The Anime Network now has a 24/7 feed. So far, it is only being carried on three non-Comcast cable systems.
TechTV died long ago - but the name lingered on, like faded etchings on a weathered tombstone.
I haven't even bothered to watch since Leo left.
I have to skip at least half of The Screen Savers because of the gaming/junk content that it shows not pertaining to computers/internet.
Got 50 biillion to launch a computer channel? Paul Allen sold TechTV it's his fault. Leo also owned part of TechTV, but Mr. Allen screwed Leo.
Doesn't Leo host "Call For Help" on the Canadian version of this channel? I thought I seen that on http://www.leoville.com
Noticed this page on the "Call For Help" webpage for Tech-TV Canada....
They want you to fill out a form and tell them what channel you want 'Call For Help' with Leo to be on in the USA!
