Apple TV Draws Attention of CBS, Disney: Report

CBS and Walt Disney are in talks to team up with Apple on a new service that would offer television subscriptions over the Internet, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.

Citing sources close to the situation, the Journal said Apple could provide viewers access to certain television stations for a monthly fee.

The creator of the popular iPhone is hoping to complete licensing negotiations and launch the service in 2010, but it remains unclear if any networks have officially signed on, the sources said.

Spokespersons from Apple, CBS and Disney declined comment to the Journal.

If Apple gains the approval of television networks, which seem to be shying away from the service, it could change the landscape of the televisions business.
