Goodbye G4 Network. Hello Esquire Channel!!

[ Edited ]

G4, a channel owned by NBCUniversal, is about to get a big makeover. According toThe Hollywood Reporter, the network struck a deal with Hearst Corporation to rebrand the gaming-cenrtic G4 to Esquire Channel. The new channel, much like its print namesake, will target smart, successful dudes.

 

Esquire Channel is set to debut in the first half of next year, as some programming (cooking, travel and fashion themed shows) is already being produced.

Perhaps this will be the male OWN channel? That one has done well.

Charliewatts, what you fail to mention is that the OWN channel viewership was as close to a zero rating as you can possibly get before that so even if they increased their viewership 1000% (which sounds amazing) it is really meaningless.

Re: Goodbye G4 Network. Hello Esquire Channel!!

G4 will no longer become The Esquire Network on April 22.

 

NBC Universal has decided to delay the channel's rebranding until later this summer, per The Hollywood Reporter. The schedule change will allow the new network to debut with five original series instead of two. The fledgling channel's slate will include Knife Fight, The Getaway, How I Rock It, American Field Trip and season five of American Ninja Warrior.
