After being in the controversial face-off with Swedish YouTube star PewDiePie early this year, aka Felix Kjellberg, T-Series has been crowned the super channel with a 100 million subscriber count. Its only nemesis PewDiePie has about 96 million subscribers.
T-Series is a corporate YouTube channel that consistently uploads movie teasers and trailers, song promos, and full regional songs featuring popular stars from India. Back in March 2019, both have tied to a 90-million subscriber count with YouTube finally taking over PewDiePie’s six-year rule as the most subscribed YouTube channel.
World’s biggest YouTube Channel, T-Series has achieved another YouTube milestone by being the first one to cross an astonishing #100MillionSubscribers.

Though Felix Kjellberg held a charade of “not caring” about the whole battle, he later uploaded a Congratulations video, taking a jibe at Indian ethics.
This YouTube battle saw people trying to sway others to subscribe to the Swedish star’s channel but in no vain. PewDiePie made a statement last year saying, “Everyone is going on the rant, ‘YouTube is not really becoming YouTube’ and, ‘it’s never going to be the same now’… I think if YouTube does shift in a way where it does feel more corporate, [then] something else will take its place.” His statement implied that if YouTube becomes a corporate ideology, viewers a user alike will find an alternative.
T-Series has a total of 25 channels which cover a gamut of entertainment field like kids, comedy. “Reaching 100 million subscribers is a big coup for T-Series and other major players in digital media,” Denis Crushell, MD, Tubular Labs, told The Independent.
