    @SBS2 and @ABC2 are your new OTP.

    Like many great romances, the relationship between these two digital channels started with a disagreement.

    It's like a @SBS2 vs @ABC2 engagement showdown on my feed from 6pm -9pm every night :|

    @SBS2 were hesitant at first.

    But @ABC2 were keen.

    They definitely didn't want their parental figure/managing director involved.
