“CBS Corp.’s discussions with Apple Inc. over TV programming will probably lead to a deal, CBS Chief Executive Officer Les Moonves said,” Scott Moritz reports for Bloomberg.
“”‘Apple is having conversations with everyone about doing their own streaming services,’ Moonves said in an interview Wednesday on Bloomberg TV. ‘We have had those conversations, as have the other networks. Do I think something will happen? Probably, but I do not know when,'” Mortiz reports. “CBS is having similar discussions with other companies including Facebook Inc. and Netflix Inc. about rights to stream TV shows and live broadcasts over the Internet, Moonves said.”
