Aug. 6 (Bloomberg) -- CBS Corp. CEO Les Moonves rejected a Time Warner Cable proposal to offer his channels a la carte on cable TV as “a public relations gesture,” escalating a dispute that led to a blackout. Jon Erlichman has more on Bloomberg Television's "Bloomberg West." (Source: Bloomberg)

What do you make of this latest twist?

Correct i thought soap operas have made their way away from network television.

This has been interesting couple of days.

People cannot watch this content.

Yesterday there was this idea put forward by time warner cable that if cbs were open to the idea of being all a cart to customers they get the choice of whether they want to buy it or not buy it as part of the time warner cable package.

We would be open to that.

Just offering cbs alone would not make for an a la carte situation.

The idea of making the dodgers or lakers programming available, how come time warner cable does not do that?

The reason they use that example is those are very pricey channels that just slip into your cable bill every couple of months.

I think this is continuing with no exact idea of how it is going to be resolved.

They are both feeling that they need to draw a line in the sand.

The latest earnings are a reminder if it is a time for them to hold on subscribers?

They are saying a couple of things on the conference call.

He thinks there could be blackouts tied to the dispute.

Dish is looking for its option s of how a gross is business.

The only way you could do a full outright acquisition now is t- mobile.

That will be an interesting thing to watch.

We will continue to watch how this plays out.
