Mindlessly watching HGTV, Food Network, or Travel Channel shows for hours and hours is great, but watching them for hours and hours without commercials on Netflix is even better. Alas, at the end of the year, that will no longer be possible.

Scripps Networks Interactive is pulling its content off of Netflix, where it’s been for two years. CEO Kenneth Lowe told investors last Monday, according to Variety, that this is about money, of course: “We have such compelling content for advertisers that we just don’t want to really cut ourselves off from any opportunity.”

Being on Netflix did teach the Scripps Networks something—though unfortunately, it was not How to make watching our shows easy, seamless, and pleasant, just as Netflix has done.

Instead, it was this: “we gained a lot of internal knowledge on the digital side and on the best way to monetize this content,” Lowe said, “including the further expansion and development of our digital sales team.”
