G4 network grabs ‘Star Trek’: G4 is making a play for Star Trek.
The Comcast-owned cable network is close to acquiring the syndication rights to the original “Star Trek” and one of its spinoffs, “Star Trek: The Next Generation” from Paramount Domestic Television, sources said.
Later in the article:
Sources also suggest that “Trek” will be part of a Comcast effort next year to reposition the channel brand of G4, which struggled to establish itself as the TV home for video gamers, in a broader play for young male viewers. A name change also is being considered.
Is the idea of a video game channel officially over, then? I still haven’t forgiven them for abandoning TechTV.
