We have heard time and again that Apple is going to launch an internet TV streaming service this year. Many expect that the company is going to unveil this service at the Worldwide Developers Conference 2015 next month where it’s also expected to talk about a new music streaming service. CBS CEO Les Moonves has revealed today that the network he heads is in negotiations with Apple over this new TV service.
Recent reports suggest that the unveiling of Apple’s TV service might be delayed and that it may not happen at WWDC 2015 because of the company’s insistence to get local TV stations on board as well, and this could take a couple of months to get all of the negotiations wrapped up and deals signed.
As far as the company is concerned it hasn’t said anything about this service, so all we have to go on at this point in time are rumors and reports that are already widely circulating.
Speaking at the Code conference CBS CEO Les Moonves said that the network is in negotiations with Apple over this service, “I met with Eddy Cue last week to talk about it,” he said.
Moonves also added that CBS is “probably” going to sign up for Apple’s new service and that the network is “very excited about it.”
So whenever Apple’s internet TV streaming service arrives, these comments make it quite clear that CBS would be one of the networks that’s bound to be on board.
