CBS CEO now says company has had no ‘recent talks’ with Apple about streaming TV service

appletvappstore

Apple’s streaming web TV service has been rumored for nearly a year now, with reports originating last March claiming that Apple was planning to announce a service at $30-$40 per month. The service was said to feature upwards of 25 channels and be available on the fourth-gen Apple TV. Recently, however, reports have claimed that Apple’s talks with major networks have stalled. Now, speaking to CNN, CBS CEO Les Moonves has confirmed that talks between Apple and CBS have stopped recently.

“We had conversations awhile back, and we haven’t had recent conversations with them,” Moonves said regarding CBS’ talks with Apple regarding a streaming TV service. Regarding current talks about streaming TV, Moonves said that “the phone is always ringing,” but it appears none of those calls are from Apple anymore.

In the past, Moonves commented that Apple was “having conversations with everyone about doing their own streaming service,” even going as far as to say CBS was “very excited” about reaching a deal for the service.

Recent reports have echoed Moonves’ comments. In December, it was reported that Apple had suspended its plans for a web TV service due to the struggles it was facing in negotiating with networks, something that has plagued Apple since it began its mission to launch streaming TV. ESPN’s president delivered a similar message last month.

In an interview last November, Eddy Cue bounced around the idea of Apple launching a streaming service, explaining that with the tvOS App Store, networks are free to release their own subscription services at their own prices.

Apple said to be in negotiations with the NFL for ‘Thursday Night Football’ streaming rights

Apple TV NFL Game Pass

According to a new report from Variety, Apple is among the tech companies negotiating with the NFL for digital rights to Thursday Night Football. Earlier this month, the National Football League inked deals with CBS and NBC to divide the TV rights for Thursday games over the next two seasons, but streaming to non-subscribers was not included in that deal.

In addition to Apple, Google, Amazon, and Verizon’s Go90 are also included in the NFL’s talks. Following the announcement of the deal with CBS and NBC, the NFL confirmed that it is “in active discussions with prospective digital partners” and expects to have a deal reached within the next “several weeks.”

One thing to consider is that for users in the United States, the Thursday night games will already be available via streaming from CBS and NBC, depending on who is broadcasting that week’s game. The difference, however, is that those streams would require a cable log-in, whereas a stream from Apple would most likely not. Although, the report notes that Apple is unsure how it would present the games at this point. It’s possible that the games would be included in the company’s rumored web TV streaming service, which has yet to come to fruition.

Last year, Yahoo streamed an NFL game worldwide and attracted 15.2 million unique viewers. Both Yahoo and the NFL were said to be have been pleased with these results.

Should Apple be able to secure streaming rights to Thursday Night Football, it would be a huge win for the company. It has been rumored in the past that Apple has struggled to negotiate with cable providers for its web TV service, but rights to NFL games would certainly add to the mix.
