CBS, in holding firm in its retransmission-consent dispute with Time Warner Cable, wanted to take "a stand about content and ... how it will be sold in the future," CBS CEO Leslie Moonves said.

While the TV business is "evolving," it's still about "creating hits for both network and cable," he added.
