Officially T-Series Becomes the first YouTube channel to reach 100 million subscribers on the video platform. PewDiePie, a T-Series competitor, has fallen behind with his subscriber base at 96 million. The Indian music label achieved the milestone of 100 million YouTube subscribers after the public internet war with the PewDiePie, involving sub wars, memes and more. T-Series, in a tweet, said that the world’s biggest YouTube channel has achieved another milestone by being the first one to cross 100 million subscribers.
The achievement for T-Series seems unsurprising too since the YouTube channel started beating PewDiePie numerous times. Starting in February, T-Series crossed PewDiePie but only for a few minutes. It soon managed to maintain the lead for longer later in March. T-Series had overtaken the Swedish YouTuber to becomes the most popular channel on YouTube earlier this year. The new development sees T-Series having four million more subscribers than its nearest rival. At the time of writing this copy, PewDiePie had 96,182,951 subscribers as compared to T Series’ 100,006,561 subscribers.
According to a Forbes magazine report, Swedish YouTuber Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, who runs the PewDiePie channel was adjudged the highest paid YouTube star in 2016. T-Series overtook PewDiePie in terms of popularity in February this year, which saw the channel starting a campaign ‘Subscribe to PewDiePie’. However, they could not overtake T-Series’ subscription list.
