new apple tv screen

The new Apple TV should land next month, but Apple's TV service is still a way off. It's been negotiating with US networks for months, but CBS is still holding out for a better offer.

CBS' CEO Les Moonves said the network would "probably" sign up to Apple's service, but the deal isn't ready yet.

"Apple is having conversations with everybody about doing their own streaming services," he told Bloomberg. "We've had conversations, as have the other networks. Do I think something will happen? Probably, but I don't know when."

This is the first anyone has said on the matter. Apple hasn't even confirmed it's making a TV streaming service.

It looks like the service won't arrive until 2016 in the US. Then it's likely to take a while to reach these shores, as the negotiations will have to start all over again. Fun times.

Amazon is also said to be working on a live TV service, though it's doubtful it will launch before Apple's.
