NEW YORK — CBS Chief Executive Les Moonves hinted to investors Tuesday that Amazon paid $ 700,000 an episode for “Under the Dome,” the summer sci-fi series that the online retailer streamed four days after CBS’ flagship broadcast network aired the shows.

Speaking at a UBS investor conference, Moonves said flexibility is key to getting the most out of subscription video-on-demand opportunities such as Netflix or Amazon Prime Instant Video.
