Most Popular Channels On YouTube: Top 20 Most Subscribed YouTube Channels Of All Time (2023 List)

What are the most subscribed YouTube channels in the world? Here are the top, most famous, and most popular YouTube channels with more subscribers.

YouTube is one of the most visited websites on the internet. As a result, there are creators and channels with millions of subscribers.

While view numbers are the most crucial YouTube metric, content creators encourage their fanbase to subscribe to their channels in the hopes that they’ll come back to watch their content in the future and, in return, earn them more money.

Of course, for many, the race between Swedish YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg and Indian production company T-Series is the first thing you think of when you consider the site’s most subscribed channels. With their war raging on for months, the Swede even dropped two diss tracks on T-Series.

Eventually, though, the war came to an end. With T-Series cementing its place as the top channel on the platform, Pewds can still celebrate its status as the largest content creator on the platform.
