A year-long battle for the number one spot for most subscribed youtube channel between PewDiePie and Indian film production house and music label T-Series has finally come to an end as T-Series dethroned PewDiePie as the most subscribed channel on youtube.
Currently, T-series has over 90.49 million subscribers while PewDiePie has subscribers with a count of less than 90.47 million.
PewDiePie was the most-subscribed youtube channel since December 2013, while T-Series has been the most-viewed and was second most-subscribed channel since early 2018.
T-Series is an Indian music record label and film production company. On YouTube, it has a multi-channel network consisting of 29 channels, run by a team of 13 people.
T-Series primarily contains Indian music videos (Bollywood music and Indi-pop) as well as Bollywood film trailers, and uploads several videos every day. T-Series began gaining massive amounts of subscribers in early 2016 and became the most-viewed channel on YouTube in February 2017.
Earlier last month T-Series head Bhushan Kumar took to Twitter and said “There is an Indian YouTube channel on the verge of becoming World’s No.1. It has taken us a lot of effort to come this far. To take my father Mr Gulshan Kumar’s dream forward, I started this channel.
“Today, it belongs to you, to the entire nation. It’s a historic moment for all of us. So let’s come together and subscribe to T-Series YouTube channel and make India proud.”
