Netflix loses content contract

Netflix Loses Scripps Networks Interactive Contract: Say Goodbye To HGTV, Food Network, Travel Channel, And More

Scripps Network Interactive has made the decision not to renew their content contract with Netflix. This means shows on HGTV, Food Network, Travel Channel, Cooking Channel, and DIY will all be pulled from the Netflix library.

According to Cinema Blend, Netflix has been removing content from their library left and right in the last few months. A large portion of the reason why Netflix has removed so much of the content is to replace it with Netflix Originals. Some of the content being removed, however, is simply because Netflix doesn’t want to dish out a ton of cash to keep offering users the content.

Digital Trends reports that it wasn’t Netflix who made the decision to end the contract with Scripps Network Interactive. Some are speculating this may have not been a contract Netflix wanted to lose as it means a number of shows will be pulled from the library. Netflix lost the Scripps Network Interactive contract which means pulling shows from HGTV, Food Network, Travel Channel, Cooking Channel, and DIY because the COO of the company did not feel that the content contract was as beneficial to them as it was to Netflix. The COO claims the decision not to extend the Scripps Network Interactive contract with Netflix was a strategic one.

“In the end, it really is not the kind of dual-revenue model that best monetizes our content over the long term.”

Netflix has yet to make a comment in regards to the losing the contract with Scripps Networks Interactive. Scripps Networks Interactive, however, has been adamant about the fact that they believe they are doing what is best for their company and do not believe the contract with Netflix does a good job of monetizing their content anymore. Fans of shows that air on HGTV, Food Network, Travel Channel, Cooking Channel, and DIY will just have to wait and see if Scripps Networks Interactive has any plans in regards to how viewers can get more on demand access to the content.
