The proposals run from minor deals concerning Sky Movies on Vodafone handsets, all the way through to the duo building a nationwide broadband network that'll rival the country's number one. It's all just gossip for now, however, and in the meantime, while these lot go at each other, Netflix can mop up behind their backs.
