    Are the Scripps channels now paying royalties?

    Scripps Networks was purchased by Discovery and the deal was closed in March 2018.

    Discovery channels pay back end royalties (let us hope this is not changing), while Scripps channels did not (!!!)

    Scripps channels include: HGTV, Food Network, DIY Network, Cooking Channel (formerly known as Fine Living), Travel Channel and Great American Country

    This has been asked before, I thought someone might have an answer by now

    Only time will tell. I do get paid on a Cooking Channel show but still not on the other channels.

    It’s a mixed bag. I had one scrips show send cue sheets to my pro and I get paid on them. When I contacted the pro about missing sheets for the same show, they say they don’t pay out on scripps shows :/

    I posted previously (lost when Art changed the look here) my last domestic statement had 35 TLC placements on it. I’m also getting paid for an infomercial being broadcast on HGTV, DIY, FOOD, Travel, GAC. All the Scripps channels I guess.

    We are all hoping that the actual Scripps shows will start paying for performances now that the merger is complete.

    BTW TLC is a Discovery show not Scripps. They have always paid.

    Bump…
    I found Discovery’s own music library..might that be a reason that people are getting less placements on Discovery shows?
