The fight for the spot as the world’s most subscribed Youtube channel has been going on for about one month now. Swedish Youtuber PewDiePie has had the largest channel in terms of subscribers for quite some time, but he is challenged by the Indian music channel T-Series.
I wrote about a year ago that T-Series already was the largest channel on Youtube in terms of number of views. T-Series overtook the Swede already back in February 2017 and now has 53.5 billion views, compared to 19.2 billion for the Swedish gamer.
According to the trend in October this year, T-Series should have passed PewDiePie already a month ago, but since this became a “thing”, PewDiePie’s numbers have improved significantly and his channel is now adding more new subscribers per day than he has done at any point during the last two years. So he has benefited a lot from the competition from T-Series.
Data from Socialblade:
T-Series will be number one this weekend
T-Series is still growing slightly faster (about 35k more per day) and at the current speed, T-Series will overtake PewDiePie as the world’s most subscribed Youtube channel on Saturday, Nov 24.
