About a year ago, news broke that Apple was working on building a cable-killing streaming TV service.

The service, which would include a smaller bundle of about two dozen channels, was rumored to come out in the fall or early this year.

But it's looking more and more like those plans are being delayed. 

The latest sign is that Les Moonves, the CEO of CBS, said it's been awhile since CBS and Apple have talked about the service.

"We had conversations awhile back, and we haven't had recent conversations with them," Moonves recently told CNN's Brian Stelter.

Moonves hasn't exactly been shy about talking about Apple's TV plans. Last May he told Re/Code's Kara Swisher that he was "very excited" about Apple's TV service, and that he'd recently met with Eddy Cue, the Apple exec in charge of software and services, to talk about such a service.

He said that CBS would "probably" be part of the service.

At Business Insider's Ignition conference in December, Moonves said that he thought that Apple had "pressed the hold button" on the TV service.

And today, it looks like that "hold button" is officially pushed — for now, at least.
