How to watch G4 online without cable
It is the rebooted video game television network attack when you watch G4 online (or with cable). Yes, friends, hosts Kevin Pereira and Adam Sessler are back after a long nine-year hiatus. And they brought a ton of new friends with them, more Ninja Warrior aka Sasuke.
But since a lot has changed in the many years since G4 left the airwaves. Now, watching people play video games isn’t strange (well, for the most part), it’s actually the mainstream. So the good news is that G4 won’t just exist on cable like it once did. This 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 reboot of the G4 will not be wired only. The Philo Streaming service (which has over 60 channels at $ 25 per month) is the only over-the-top live TV service to host the channel in its entirety, but G4 will be somewhere else if you don’t have Philo (check out our Philo review for 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 assortment of channels just isn’t 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
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 subscribe to any of these services and your menu search doesn’t work, contact your provider to find out where they keep G4. It is most likely in a level that you are not subscribed to.
We’ll update this section as G4’s channels go public and spread to more networks.
What to expect from the new G4
Along with the familiar 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 performing in campaigns of the popular tabletop game.
The other big name attached to G4 is Xavier Woods (aka Austin Watson), the WWE superstar who started a hugely popular YouTube gaming channel, UpUpDownDown. Woods, currently known as King Woods after winning the King of the Ring tournament, is set to host a reveal show and produced in partnership 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 being 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 hosted by Indiana “Froskurinn” Black, Ovilee May and Alex “Goldenboy” Mendez. Online content creator Scott Wozniak aka ScottTheWoz will also be in attendance.
