G4 (second era)



In late 2012, G4's studio programming was ceased in preparation for its re-launch as the Esquire Network on September 23, 2013, as part of a licensing deal with Hearst Corporation, owner of Esquire magazine. However, on September 9, 2013, news broke that NBCUniversal will instead replace Style with Esquire Network leaving G4 "as is for the foreseeable future, though it's highly unlikely the company will invest in more original programming".

With G4 slowly winding down operations, syndication rights to Cops, Heroes, and Lost ended at the end of August with the new television season, leaving G4 to only air repeats of their original series beginning on September 1, 2014.

G4 ended all operations on December 31, 2014, after a game of Pong (referencing the channel's launch), and somebody yelling "I'm at Comic-Con!"

Unfortunately, In September of 2017, G4 Canada Shut Down.
