PewDiePie vs. T-Series: Next milestone

The two huge channels have been competing against each other for the best part of six months, and despite T-Series hopping ahead of Pewds on a few occasions, the YouTuber has been able to bounce back remarkably because of his ever-growing cult following. 

Now, in the race to 100 million subs, it looks almost certain that the Swede will scoop another major milestone on the platform, despite having his successful diss tracks blocked in India following a court order from T-Series.

PewDiePie and T-Series have been locked in a back and forth YouTube subscriber battle for over six months.

Based on the live subscriber counts for both channels, PewDiePie looks on course to be the first YouTuber to reach 94 million subs. 

The YouTuber is around 100,000 new subscribers away from reaching the landmark, with the Indian production company trailing by just over 200,000 at the time of writing. 

PewDiePie vs. T-Series: Recent ups and downs

While that sounds incredibly impressive for PewDiePie, reaching that milestone will not have come without some peaks and troughs.

During the months of March and April, T-Series recorded leads of 30,000 and later 100,000 – a distance that many mainstream media outlets such as the BBC reported could spell the end for his reign as YouTube’s king. 

The content creator has enjoyed a recent surge in popularity, though, with the release of his latest ‘Congratulations’ diss track   which initially put him at a 400,000 lead. However, since then, T-Series has managed to half that margin to around 200,000. 

The chances of T-Series springing ahead in the future is likely, due to their ever-growing popularity in India, but the statistics suggest the 94 million mark is in touching distance for the Swede.
