TECH TV sign now

To: Comcast, G4 Media


This letter is to inform you that we the fans of TECH TV are disappointed with the quality of TECH TV programming that has aired since the merger between G4 and TECH TV. Since the merger of the two television networks there has been an unequal distribution of gaming television programming and a significantly reduced amount of technology related programming. As a result the educational value of TECH TV has significantly diminished. A prime example is the elimination of the TECH TV show Call for Help. Viewers were allowed to call in with their technology questions and get valuable solutions and information from the TECH TV hosts that benefited not only the callers but all viewers watching the show.

The elimination of Call for Help reduces the amount of people who can interact with and benefit from Tech TV and as such has reduced the amount of technology information available to the general public. This is unacceptable.

It seems Comcast is attempting to convert TECH TV fans into G4 fans by leaving behind a few TECH TV shows and replacing the rest with gaming shows like Cheat and Cinematch. While there is nothing wrong with games, gaming, and gaming shows, the world is not a game. The value of technology and technology information is significantly more important than just games. There were viewers who would use the information obtained via TECH TV at work to help perform their jobs, to help their kids, family and friends, and to improve their overall computing skills. Even kids and teenagers interacted with TECH TV via calling in or special cable in the class room shows. This is hardly possible now, given the current programming being aired on G4TECHTV.

Again, there is nothing wrong with games and a channel dedicated to gaming. In fact its a good idea to have a channel devoted to gaming where fans can get and share information. Being able to share and get information was one of the major benefits of TECH TV. TECH TV and G4 share this goal of information dissemination. However it is unacceptable to continue to allow Comcast, G4 or any other party involved to undermine the value of technology oriented programming by saturating G4TECHTV with an unfair amount of gaming programming. How would the fans of G4 feel if the majority of their favorite gaming television programming was one day replaced with TECH TV shows like Robot Wars, The Screen Savers, Tech Live etc.? I am almost certain they would be just as upset about loosing the programming they enjoyed.

The goal of this document is to inform Comcast, G4 Media and any other party involved that we find the changes made to TECH TV UNACCEPTABLE and that were not happy or satisfied with the changes the merger between the two television networks has made.

The bottom line is we want what was taken from us back. We want the television programming, websites, message boards, television hosts, and all elements of TECH TV that existed prior to the merger with G4 Media. We understand that Comcast, G4 and other parties may have been trying to create a new sensational television network via the merger but they have fallen short of their goal.

A proposed solution is to keep the two television networks separate but cross advertise for shows on each network. (i.e. show commercials for G4 shows on Tech TV and show TECH TV commercials on G4).

Please sign this letter of petition if you have similar views or other possible solutions and would like to share them with Comcast and G4 Media and other parties that may be involved. Please dont hesitate to take action. If you sit by and do nothing then nothing will happen. Together we have a chance and together we can make a difference.
