Initially, his content consisted of gameplays and videos where he estimated the net worth of YouTubers. Currently, his videos feature challenges and bets among strangers and his friends where he gives away large sums of money to the winners.

2. T-Series

This channel from India belongs to the music label Super Cassettes Industries Private Limited (SCIL). Its content is based on music videos, Bollywood movie trailers, and short films.

Since its creation, it has maintained strong competition with PewDiePie and Cocomelon, but it is currently surpassed by MrBeast. It was the most subscribed YouTube channel of all time for six years. Now, it continues to gain subscribers, but it is far from reaching MrBeast. It accumulates more than 267 million subscribers (45 million more than in 2022). It has more than 21 thousand videos uploaded to the platform.

3. Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes

This is a children’s channel known for creating 3D animation videos while singing traditional nursery rhymes and original songs. In 2022, it had 142 million subscribers and currently has 177 million.

Cocomelon was created in September 2006 and has more than 1,100 videos uploaded. On this channel, you can find songs in English, Spanish, and Portuguese, which allows it to gain many more views worldwide. Its success has crossed over from YouTube to make it into the top 10 playlists on Netflix. One of their videos is among the most watched videos in YouTube history.

4. SET India

SET India is the abbreviation for Sony Entertainment Television, an Indian general entertainment pay-TV channel that was launched on YouTube in 2006 (the TV channel itself has existed since 1995), although they did not start uploading videos until 2009.

In two years, it went from having 142 million subscribers to over 173 million. It has more than 134 thousand videos uploaded to the platform.

5. ✿ Kids Diana Show

So far, we have talked about channels belonging to companies or adults, but this channel belongs to Eva Diana Kidisyuk, a 10-year-old Ukrainian girl who has gathered 123 million subscribers (23 million more than in 2022) thanks to her child-oriented role-playing content, where she plays with her older brother Roma and their parents. Both her channel and her family’s channel have been dubbed into Hindi, Japanese, Indonesian, Russian, Spanish, German, Portuguese, and Arabic.

Diana’s parents, Olena and Volodymyr Kidisyuk, started creating videos for YouTube as a hobby and opened Diana’s channel in 2015 as a way to share videos of the girl with their family and friends. However, the channel grew so rapidly that by 2017, both parents left their jobs to focus on the channel, moving to Miami, Florida.

Diana has an animated series called Love, Diana – The Princess Of Play, which has led to the launch of mobile games and toys. The channel’s content also includes children’s songs, unboxings, vlogging, and educational entertainment. Her brother Roma stars in another channel titled Kids Roma Show.

6. Vlad and Niki

In this position, we find another children’s channel, this time a Russian-American channel, revolving around the outdoor adventures of brothers Vladislav and Nikita. The videos also feature the children’s parents in a wide variety of settings (from vacations at a water park to children’s challenges). However, currently, Vlad and Niki mainly focuses on toy unboxings, becoming a reference for parents and brands in the industry.

The channel has gathered 119 million subscribers (33 million more than two years ago) and has 728 videos uploaded to YouTube.

7. Like Nastya

Similar to the case of Kids Diana Show, this channel belongs to a 10-year-old girl: Anastasia Radzinskaya, who has become a sensation with her 116 million subscribers (4 million more than in 2022) on her main channel and her presence on TikTok, where she has over 7.6 million followers.

Anastasia’s story began somewhat tragically, as she was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at birth, and her parents started recording videos of her undergoing therapies to keep friends and family informed of her progress.

Soon after, following significant growth and a full recovery, they began creating toy unboxing content and then diversified into other content, such as role-playing, park visits, and marketing their own products, including toys, clothing, and books.

Four months ago, Anastasia launched a new YouTube channel called Nastya, which already has 660 thousand subscribers and 15 videos. These videos show a much more grown-up girl with content not so focused on young children.

8. PewDiePie

Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg has 111 million followers. Kjellberg created his first YouTube account called “Pewdie” in December 2006, but after forgetting the password, he created “PewDiePie” on April 29, 2010.

Initially, his content was based on gameplays, but after experiencing exponential growth between 2012 and 2013—when he became the channel with the most subscribers in the world—his content diversified into vlogs, shorts, and comedy shows. Between 2014 and 2017, it was the most-viewed YouTube channel. In 2016, Time magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Now is focused in his family, although he keeps uploading videos.

9. Zee Music Company

It is the third Indian channel with the most subscribers and ninth on our list of the most interesting YouTube channels, a position it has maintained for 2 years.

The channel was created in 2005, but its first video was uploaded on July 13, 2009, and since then, it has been uploading a video daily. In September 2013, it reached its first million subscribers, becoming the first Indian channel to achieve this milestone.

10. WWE 

In the last position of the top 10, having lost one position, we find the official channel of World Wrestling Entertainment, which was created in May 2007 and currently has 102 million subscribers (11 million more than in 2022), all fans of wrestling. Its content is based on live wrestling broadcasts, interviews, specials, recaps, and fight segments, although it has diversified into other fields such as cinema and American football.
