Ratings for five of the company’s U.S. channels have increased, along with third-quarter earnings that exceeded the company’s expectations.

Scripps Network Interactive, the lifestyle media company that owns popular channels such as HGTV and Food Network, will not renew its contract with Netflix that is set to end this year.

Some of the Scripps’ TV shows that have been streaming on Netflix since October 2014 are Food Network Star, Worst Cooks in America, Fixer Upper, Flip or Flop, and Property Brothers.

Ken Lowe, chief operating officer of Scripps, said in a conference call that the network was “big enough” and the company shouldn’t be limited by streaming partnerships, according to FOX News.

“If you look at where the industry is going… we just see a lot of opportunities. … We have such compelling content for advertisers we don’t want to cut ourselves off,” he said.

The strategic move was made on Scripps’ part, but Netflix has already been removing content from its library to make room for more Netflix Originals shows, Inquisitr reported.
