Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Indian music video channel T-Series[1] is the most-subscribed channel on YouTube, with 158 million subscribers as of October 2020.[2]
Swedish Let's Player and web comedian PewDiePie[3][4] is the most-subscribed individual user on YouTube,[5][6] with 107 million subscribers as of October 2020.[2]

On the video platform YouTube, a subscriber to a channel is a user who, by selecting that channel's subscribe button, has chosen to receive content released by the channel. Each user's subscription feed consists of videos recently published by channels to which the account is subscribed.[7] The ability to subscribe to users was introduced in October 2005,[8] and the website began publishing a list of its "most subscribed Members" in April 2006.[9] An early archive of the list dates to May 2006, at which time Smosh, with fewer than three thousand subscribers, occupied the number one position.[10] Since then, at least ten other YouTube channels have possessed the platform's largest subscriber count; these include Judson Laipply, Brookers, geriatric1927, lonelygirl15, nigahiga, Fred, Ray (formerly RayWilliamJohnson), PewDiePie, and YouTube (formerly YouTube Spotlight). The most-subscribed channel as of October 2020 is T-Series, an Indian music video publisher operated by the entertainment company of the same name. With a subscriber count of 158 million, the channel has held this distinction since April 2019.

Most-subscribed channels

The following table lists the fifty most-subscribed channels on YouTube,[A] with each total rounded down to the nearest million subscribers,[2] as well as the primary language and content category of each channel. The channels are ordered by number of subscribers; those whose displayed subscriber counts are identical are listed in no particular order. Automatically-generated channels that lack their own videos (such as Music and News) and channels that have been made effectively obsolete as a result of the transferral of their content (such as JustinBieberVEVO and RihannaVEVO)[note 1] are excluded. As of October 2020, 25 of the 50 channels listed primarily produce content in English.

Following the third time that Smosh became the most-subscribed YouTube channel, Ray William Johnson collaborated with the duo.[132] A flurry of top YouTubers including Ryan Higa, Shane Dawson, Felix Kjellberg, Michael Buckley, Kassem Gharaibeh, the Fine Brothers, and Johnson himself, congratulated the duo shortly after they surpassed Johnson as the most-subscribed channel.[133]

PewDiePie vs T-Series

In mid-2018, the subscriber count of the Indian music video channel T-Series rapidly approached that of Swedish web comedian and Let's Player PewDiePie, who at the time was the most-subscribed user on YouTube.[134][135] As a result, fans of PewDiePie and T-Series, other YouTubers and celebrities showed their support for both channels. During the competition, both channels gained a large amount of subscribers at a rapid rate. The two channels surpassed each other in subscriber count on a number of occasions in February, March, and April 2019.[112][113][114][116]

Notes

  1. ^ The total number of channels listed may exceed fifty if a tie exists for the fiftieth-highest subscriber count.
  2. ^ T-Series surpassed PewDiePie in subscriber count on numerous occasions, each lasting fewer than 24 hours, from February to late March 2019.[112][113][114] The first incident to last at least 24 hours began on March 27 and ended on April 1.[115][116]
  1. ^ These are not to be mistaken for the channels Justin Bieber and Rihanna, both of which are included.
