He is attacked by the restarted video game television network while watching G4 online (or via cable). Yes, friends, hosts Kevin Pereira and Adam Sessler are back in the air after a long nine-year hiatus. And they’ll be bringing a ton of new friends with them, plus Ninja Warrior aka Sasuke.
But since a lot has changed in the many years since G4 left the airwaves. Now, it’s no wonder that watching people play video games (well, for the most part), it’s actually mainstream. The good news is therefore that the G4 will not exist only on cable, as in the past. It would basically be a recipe for disaster as the public is cutting the cord with the best cable TV alternatives.
Where to watch G4 online?
The content of the first restart of the G4 will not only be wired. The Philo streaming service (which has over 60 channels for $ 25 per month) is the only over-the-top live TV service that hosts the channel in its entirety, but G4 will be somewhere else if you do not has Philo. (see our Philo review to find out more).
Philo is available on most of the best streaming devices Chromecast, Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV and Android TV. Alas, it’s not one of the best streaming services out there, as its selection of channels just is not enough for most cable cutters.
G4 will also be broadcasting a selection of live shows on Twitch and YouTube as this is the online era. Here is the program for the launch week:

Where to watch G4 on cable?
The G4 has three anchor points in traditional linear cable television. Verizon Fios, Cox, and Xfinity TV. Channel numbers are not published on this date, but if you have subscribed to any of these services and your menu search does not work, contact your provider to find out where it stores G4. This is very possible in a level to which you are not subscribed.
We will update this section as G4 channels go public and expand to more networks.
What to expect from the new G4?
Along with the well-known shows rebooted by Pereira (Attack of the Show) and Sessler (Xplay), the new G4 will also be a Dungeons & Dragons limited series featuring celebrities, D&D players and other popular online personalities appearing in popular table game campaigns .
The other big name associated with the G4 is Xavier Woods (aka Austin Watson), the WWE superstar who started a hugely popular YouTube gaming channel, UpUpDownDown. Woods, who is currently known as King Woods after winning the King of the Ring tournament, is to host a revealing show and produced in collaboration with WWE. Although we wonder if the silence about this show could be linked to reports that UpUpDownDown is no longer producing content due to a dispute between Woods / Watson and WWE, as reports from Fightful Select have announced that ‘he was not paid properly for the work he does for this channel.
Pereira will be assisted by Gina Darling, Kassem “Kassem G” Gharaibeh, Will Neff and Fiona Nova for Attack of the Show.
Sessler’s Xplay will also feature Jirard “The Completionist” Khalil and Corey “The Black Hokage” Smallwood.
G4 will also offer a new show called Boosted with Indiana “The Frog” Black, Ovilee May and Alex “Goldenboy” Mendez as hosts. Online content creator Scott Wozniak aka ScottTheWoz will also be present.
