The subscriber count war between PewDiePie and T-Series has seen both channels benefit greatly. They've continued to gain a significant number of subscribers as they battle for the top spot on YouTube, with PewDiePie's channel now surpassing an impressive and record-breaking milestone.
As of March 19, 2019, PewDiePie is at 90,015,125 subscribers. That number continues to grow by the minute, and will likely be even higher by the time this is published. Needless to say, this is an extremely impressive feat, and it means that the only channel that really stands a chance at beating PewDiePie is T-Series at this point.
T-Series is right behind PewDiePie, with a little over 89 million subscribers at the time of this writing. At the rate it's gaining subscribers, it's just a matter of time before T-Series passes the 90 million subscriber count threshold as well. From that point, it will be a race to see which YouTube channel will have the distinction of being the first channel to hit the staggering 100 million subscribers mark.
While it may seem like PewDiePie has the win in the bag, his feud with T-Series hasn't been without victories for the Indian-based music video channel. On multiple occasions, T-Series has beaten PewDiePie for the top spot on YouTube, but usually only for a few minutes before PewDiePie's followers rally behind him and help reclaim the throne. Unless interest in the PewDiePie vs. T-Series feud suddenly dies out, we expect this will continue until PewDiePie hits 100 million subscribers at least. Honestly, it may very well go on indefinitely, considering how many people have bought into the rivalry.
PewDiePie has gone to great lengths to promote his channel during this feud and to keep the top spot on YouTube from T-Series. The more notable stunts have included celebrity guest appearances, like when billionaire Elon Musk hosted Meme Review. PewDiePie has also streamed some of the world's most popular video games to keep his subscriber count ahead of T-Series, including Fortnite, Minecraft, and more.
PewDiePie likely has a few more tricks up his sleeve as the battle with T-Series rages on. When the dust finally settles, it will be interesting to see which YouTube channel ultimately comes out on top.
