G4 is a television network dedicated to all things gaming and geek. It was launched in the early 2000s but was bought out in 2014. And then the shows were taken down one by one.

However, G4 is now back, with a new direction for the internet generation where everything is streamed online. So here’s what kind of shows to expect on G4, and how (and where) to watch them.

What G4 shows are available to watch?

G4 launched with more shows than expected, resulting in an overwhelming amount of content to consume. Here are the shows available to stream at the time of writing:

  1. The Show Attack: Host Kevin Pereira describes AOTS as “a variety show about geek culture”. The show is broken up into segments consisting of hilarious sketches, peeks at the latest internet videos, discussing trending topics in nerd culture, and unscripted conversations with fellow G4 hosts and special guests.
  2. The loop: The Loop is a longer segment of Attack Of The Show, uploaded on its own. This is an interview style show where host Kevin Pereira sits down with a special guest (most recently Adam Savage from Mythbusters) or another G4 host to discuss various topics regarding technology, video games, science and fashionable stories.
  3. xplay: Host Adam Sessler returns with long and short video game reviews and explanations. Sessler does a terrific job of bringing his video game consulting expertise while being hilarious, relatable, and incredibly informative.
  4. Boosted: Join hosts Ovilee May and Froskurinn as they discuss trends, news and professional gaming tournaments in the world of esports.
  5. Dungeons & Dragons presents party invite: This is a new series for G4 that follows four campaigns played with various G4 hosts, celebrities, and other D&D enthusiasts.
