It’s “preordained” that CBS will renew its program licensing deal with Netflix, broadcast company CEO Les Moonves told analysts this evening. He added that CBS “will get more money for this and we will have better visibility onto which shows will go into those packages.” OK, so what shows work best on Netflix? He volunteered one franchise that probably shouldn’t come as a surprise: Star Trek. (Analysts didn’t pin him down on whether he specifically meant the original series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, or Star Trek: Enterprise.) Moonves added that CBS’ “relationship [with Netflix] is so good that we will be adding titles including CSI: Miami.”
