Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Indian music video channel T-Series[1] is the most-subscribed channel on YouTube, with more than 99 million subscribers as of May 2019[2]

This article lists the fifty most-subscribed channels on the video platform YouTube.[2] The ability to subscribe to users was introduced in October 2005,[3] and the website began publishing a list of its "most subscribed Members" in April 2006.[4] 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.[5] The most-subscribed channel as of May 2019 is T-Series, which has accumulated more than 99 million subscribers since 2006.

More than ten different channels have been the most-subscribed in the history of YouTube: Smosh, Judson Laipply, Brookers, geriatric1927, lonelygirl15, nigahiga, Fred, Ray (formerly RayWilliamJohnson), PewDiePie, YouTube (formerly YouTube Spotlight), and T-Series.

Most-subscribed channels

The following table lists the fifty most-subscribed channels on YouTube, with each total rounded down to the nearest million subscribers, as well as the network, primary language, and content category of each channel. 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 May 2019, twenty-eight of the fifty channels primarily produce content in English.

"N/A" signifies that the channel is self-owned and unaffiliated with any multi-channel network.

In 2009, the Fred channel became the first to attain one million subscribers.[165]

Following the third time that Smosh became the most-subscribed YouTube channel, Ray William Johnson collaborated with the duo.[166] 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.[167]

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.[168][169] As a response, PewDiePie fans and other YouTubers have shown their support for PewDiePie, while T-Series fans and other YouTubers have shown support for T-Series, in the PewDiePie vs T-Series competition. During the competition, both channels have been gaining a large amount of subscribers at a rapid rate. The two channels have surpassed each other in subscriber count on a number of occasions in February, March, and April 2019.[146][147][148][150]
