Mr. Moonves also confirmed CBS won’t bid for the Olympics next week. “It’s not going to be a cost-effective thing for us,” he said.

Asked about Netflix, Mr. Moonves reiterated that CBS views it as much more a friend than a foe. “We love Netflix,” he said and repeated a previous comment: “They are not the Antichrist.”

TV on Blu-ray: ‘True Blood’

The third season of HBO’s hit series “True Blood” (HBO Home Video, rated TV-MA, $79.98) arrives in the high-definition format to tempt adult vampire lovers with 12 episodes of the soap-operatic adventures of telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse and her fanged boyfriend, Bill Compton.

The story, tied to vampires joining the mainstream world thanks to the invention of an artificial blood supply, continues with brutish Bill being kidnapped by a pack of werewolves with his love in hot pursuit.

The Blu-ray extras are as great as the Cajun-twanged show itself. Most impressive is the enhanced viewing experience on every episode.

These companion resources, played during the shows, include flashbacks to previous episodes, picture-in-picture perspectives from the characters, and a stream of text facts, biographies, plot points and trivia.

A fifth disc delivers even more bonus content, including more than two hours of those character perspectives (not tethered to the episodes) and an interactive guide covering the citizens and visitors to Bon Temps, La.
