NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- According to sources close to the situation, contrary to prior media reports, Apple (AAPL - Get Report) is not "in talks" with Time Warner's (TWX - Get Report) Home Box Office over licensing the latter's content for some type of pay-television service.There are no negotiations between Apple and HBO, merely standard conversations about existing relationships (such as HBO GO's authenticated presence on the existing Apple TV set-top box). In these discussions, other things "come up," however the source tells me there is a difference between "talking" and being "in talks" or "negotiations."
