T-Series Smashes YouTube Record, Crosses 100 Billion Total Views

The top spot with regards to subscribers has been a highly coveted position for creators that post a lot of their content on YouTube, and the fact of the matter is that for a very long time indeed the creator that managed to hold the top spot, that too by a pretty huge margin, was an immensely popular YouTuber by the name of PewDiePie. PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, saw a meteoric rise on YouTube, so much so that he smashed record after record with no other channel managing to come close to his success.

Then, in 2018, there was a boom in smartphone usage in India with the total number of users going from 18% of the population to 25% which means that there are as many smartphone users in India now as there are people in America. This boom in smartphone usage meant that more Indians started to use platforms like YouTube on a regular basis for one thing in particular: listening to music and watching music videos.

The record label T-Series has been active since the eighties and is responsible for one third of the music that Bollywood creates, but its YouTube channel established in 2010 didn’t get the same level of success until 2018 during the smartphone boom. T-Series quickly surpassed PewDiePie as the top subscribed channel on YouTube and it has now smashed a completely different record: the most views received on all of a particular channel’s videos.

T-Series has become the first YouTube channel to successfully cross 100 billion views across its range of videos, and if the monthly viewer numbers are anything to go by it seems that the success of the channel is starting to get more and more serious day by day which means that the future could see this platform smashing many more records.

Here is a list of most-viewed channels on YouTube right now:
