CBS CEO said met with Apple to discuss TV deal

“We will probably do a deal with Apple TV,” Moonves said during an onstage talk at a conference hosted by Re/code, an online-only technology publication, and added that he met last week with Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services.

Moonves said that television is moving away from 200-channel subscription packages as people watch fewer channels. He said he believes Apple will offer a less expensive TV package with fewer channels.
