Consider it your Halloween trick. Both sides have been negotiating for months, but haven't been able to come to a new carriage deal.

“We were unable to reach an agreement to carry G4 and it is being removed from the DirecTV platform tomorrow,” a DirecTV spokesman said on Sunday.

“We have been trying to engage DirecTV in fair and reasonable discussions to continue to carry G4,” the channel said in a statement last week.
