"We had conversations awhile back, and we haven't had recent conversations with them," Moonves told CNNMoney in an interview last week.
Last October, Moonves confirmed "Apple is having conversations with everyone about doing their own streaming services."
Several publications reported the video streaming network was coming. According to the Wall Street Journal in March 2015, Apple was planning a slimmed-down bundle of about 25 channels for launch in fall 2015. Later reports noted Apple has scaled back its streaming efforts.
It's not clear why Apple has stopped talks or paused them for the time being.
