G4 Network now in limbo

Will not become the Esquire Network

We didn’t see this coming at all, but after some reflection it does seem to make sense. NBCUniversal will announce that they have pulled back from their original plan to rebrand and remake the G4 channel into the new Esquire Network. Instead, the company will have the Esquire Network take over the Style channel which the company believes is better positioned. (Better positioned translates into the fact that the Style channel is in 75 million homes when compared to G4, which is only in 62 million homes. G4 was dropped from many Satellite and Cable systems as viewership declined.)

At least for the time being, the channel will continue, but it is unlikely that the company will invest in more original programming for the channel. This, of course, leaves the channel in limbo.
