Apple oddly hasn’t reached out in a while.
It’s unclear why talks between the two companies have stopped for now. Perhaps Moonves is very cleverly trying to hint that talks have stopped simply because negotiations are finished, but more likely Apple is probably focusing on something else at the moment.
“Apple is having conversations with everyone about doing their own streaming services,” he said last year, confirming that Apple is (or was) actively trying to round up the networks for a new kind of television package. He also told CNNMoney that he still doesn’t know for sure whether Apple will be ready to launch the new Apple TV service this year or not.
Moonves did indicate though that CBS would be willing to join the Apple TV service lineup if both companies were able to agree on the financial side of things. But since the two have been silent lately, it looks like it’ll take a little while longer for that to happen.
