  TechTV - Uncyclopedia
TechTV is a popular UHF television network, currently based in exile in Back-of-the-woods, Nunavut, devoted to computers, both versions of the Interweb, hardcore techno music, and Taiwanese puppet animation (Hantai).
TechTV was founded on May 11, 1998 as ZDTV (Zenon-Denon TV) as a joint venture of Zenon (a division of Toon Disney-Exxon Mobil Omnimedia, LLC) and Denon (the budget North Korean automaker).
TechTV forces in exile lamented this, and pushed for G4 to admit this was a takeover by eliminating the TechTV from their name and changing the name of the Screen Savers to "Attack of the Show" - which they did.

 TechTV - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
On August 21, 2000, ZDTV was renamed TechTV, and a new on-air strategy was announced along with a slew of new series.
TechTV was also broadcast over the air on KTQW in Wichita, KS until the TechTV name was dropped during the G4 merger.
This move became hugely controversial among loyal fans of TechTV and Leo Laporte, because of a contract dispute with Vulcan that caused Laporte to leave the channel.

 G4-TechTV War - Uncyclopedia
G4 assumed full control of TechTV on May 28, 2004, and renamed it to G4techtv in an attempt to deceive TechTV forces that this was a merger and not an invasion.
This began with the announcement that TechTV's headquarters would be completely closed down in favor of moving all operations to G4's headquarters, which was intended to eliminate all rebellion by TechTV forces and entice many to leave TechTV forever.
In a desperate attempt to revive his post TechTV career, Kevin Rose decided to come clean and appear on the cover of People Magazine with the news a lot of us suspected: That he was gay and in a relationship with Lance Bass.

 Newsvine - TechTV Reborn as 'UndoTV'
I think it is interesting that this is at least the fourth time this article has been seeded from the same source (wired) and yet has just now made it to the front page.
TechTV was something that I actually watched on a regular basis, but now that it's G4 (?), I don't tune in hardly ever, and I don't much like the programming line-up the way it is now.
I am curious to see how Undo will be different from the others but the old school techtv folks are enough for me to give it a chance.

 TechTV is coming back, except it isn't - TV Squad
I never watched TechTV, despite having worked for on-air host Chris Pirillo and his Lockergnome venture for a couple of years.
Eventually, they ended up cutting almost all of the original TechTV programming, and later, even a lot of the original G4 programming, as they make their move to becoming another cable channel that serves up reruns of old content.
When G4 bought TechTV the Canadian channel took a lot of the gaming crap that replaced the TechTV shows, but were smart enough to hire Leo Laporte to do a version of "Call For Help" in Toronto (he flies up one week a month to do 15 episodes of the show).

 Slashdot | Inside TechTV/G4
I was never a big TechTV fan, but TSS was a fairly good view while eating lunch and safe viewing material for people like my parents who might not understand everything on the show, but got a fair education into subjects they wouldn't have before...
The shows that TechTV did keep so that it didn't look like a complete takeover of G4 were butchered to the point that they were practially a G4 show, or cancelled to put on CinemaTech or some other Brain Dead Show of the day G4 could come up with.
So they bought TechTV-- which was available on far, far, far more cable networks than G4 due to the many years spent building up a reputation-- with the intent of simply replacing TechTV with G4 and thus getting all of TechTV's market penetration without having to work for it.

 The Screen Savers on TechTV - macosx.com - Mac Support
The Screen Savers on TechTV (formerly ZDTV) is a GREAT show and has really been giving Mac's a lot of coverage.
The topics are entertaining and informative but the element of the show that I enjoy most is that it is filmed before a live audience.
TechTV fed us pizza while we waited in the greenroom and Patrick and Leo came in and kicked it with us for about 30 minutes before the show.
