This channel makes TechTV look like Masterpiece Theater. The first thing I watched was a whole hour of video sequences from Star Fox 64, Sonic Adventure 2, etc and thats all it was: video sequences.
One okay show was an interview with the cast of XXX. However the host was annoying with such questions as "Can Vin Diesel Kiss Better Than Me?".
I cannot see this channel even lasting 6 months. I know....Comcast owns the channel, but still......this is one channel that Dish could use to make a comparison of cable and its own service.
"We have such quality channels as National Geographic, History Channel, and Boomerang. However cable has less channels; costs much more than cable; and even some channels that you wouldnt want to see.....like G4"
I thought MuchMusic USA was the worst channel I ever experienced watching. I was wrong. G4 is much, much worse than MuchMusicUSA.

I have to agree with Gary again

Instead they made room for G4 which isnt supposed to be great. They also spent alot for the production of this channel, and only Comcast and Insight are carry it, and not even in analog.

1) A 1 hour music video show on action highlights from various videogames. Who wants to see video highlights from Super Mario 64?
2)A "Sportswriters On TV" type show with people at a roundtable telling their opinions on whats happening with that new XXX videogame (based on the movie XXX).....and its for Game Boy Advance.
3)"Cheat": A show about how to cheat in videogames. There was one amusing segment about how to play in the current Sega baseball game for the Nintendo GameCube as mascots. Imagine seeing a game where all the players (even the Manager) are mascots.
