PewDiePie beats T-Series to 85 million YouTube subscribers as the gap continues to shrink

PewDiePie beats T-Series to 85 million YouTube subscribers as the gap continues to shrink

The battle for YouTube supremacy between Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg and T-Series has rumbled on for months, and the Swede has reached another massive subscriber milestone ahead of his rival.


T-Series are an indian entertainment company who boast some of Bollywood’s biggest musical stars on the platform, with the company’s YouTube channel gaining new subscribers at an incredible pace throughout 2018.

While T-Series have come close to overtaking Kjellberg on a number of occasions, they have yet to overhaul PewDiePie, who has beat them again in a race to a major YouTube mark.

PewDiePie is still ahead of T-Series - for now.


On Monday, February 11, PewDiePie became the first YouTuber to hit 85 million subscribers on the platform, once again setting a new record on the video-streaming site.

Back in October, Kjellberg thought it was unlikely that he would be the first channel to hit 68 million subscribers, but his channel has seen incredible growth thanks to a number of campaigns helping to raise awareness for his situation.

Popular YouTuber Mr Beast has rented out billboards and even advertised PewDiePie during the Super Bowl, while an adult content creator on Pornhub also did her part in making sure the Swede remains on top.


The battle between Kjellberg and T-Series is tighter than ever, and you can keep an eye on the race to the top of YouTube using our PewDiePie vs T-Series live subscriber count.

The Swede is currently 62,000 subscribers ahead of the Indian company, but T-Series continue to close the gap.
