May 15 (Bloomberg) -- CBS Corp. President and CEO Les Moonves comments on the proposed Comcast-Time Warner Cable merger. He speaks on Bloomberg Television's "Street Smart." (Source: Bloomberg)

Together.

Is this a monopoly?

The justice department determines that.

We have had great relations with comcast.

We have a newfound contract with time warner cable.

We fought very hard for it.

These contracts will have to come together after the merger.

We are looking at how we negotiate between those two contracts and come up with a suitable deal that is satisfactory to us.

We are looking forward to that.

It is -- is it topic that you get these companies together and there is negotiating power?

Nbc's producing a lot of content.

You would think that comcast time warner would want to push that back.

I'm sure that they will prevent nbc from getting an advantage.

Once again, as long as we continue to do the types of content we are doing, the number one network in america, they will pay us fairly.

We have negotiated with them before.

They are tough and smart.

We will come to a resolution.
