Netflix to Lose Some of Your Favorite Shows in 2017

Spread the love

If you are a fan of cooking shows such as Man V. Food and Chopped, you better start binge watching because it looks like you only have until the end of 2016 to catch them on Netflix.

Scripps Networks Interactive has announced that they will not be renewing their contract with Netflix. Scripps owns Food Network, Travel Channel, HGTV and the DIY Network, which means that you could be losing a lot of your favorite shows.

Speaking on Scripps Networks’ earnings call with analysts Monday, COO Burton Jablin said that the company had looked closely at its SVOD strategy and determined that making its shows available for streaming on Netflix was not the best way to monetize its content.

CEO Kenneth Lowe stated, “We have such compelling content for advertisers that we just don’t want to really cut ourselves off from any opportunity.”

So, in other words, there are no commercials so they feel they aren’t making as much money as they could.

The shows you probably be losing in January include:
