PewDiePie video views from July 2016 to January 2020

Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg - operating on YouTube as PewDiePie - is one of the most successful content creators on the platform. Having amassed more subscribers than any individual YouTuber, second only to India’s largest record label and movie studio T-series, PewDiePie has now passed the 20 billion total video view mark.

Most popular channels

While PewDiePie’s accumulated 20 billion views is impressive, it is dwarfed by the most watched channels on YouTube. Indian television station Zee TV’s channel is the most watched YouTube channel on a monthly basis, with viewers watching their videos an incredible 7.81 billion times every month. Although India’s large population is an obvious advantage in terms of video views, with an internet penetration rate of 34.4 percent, large portions of the country are unlikely to have access to YouTube. Unlikely stars such as Ryan Toysreview have also attracted close to 30 billion views, generating significant revenue in the process.

Big views, big bucks

  Kjellberg first incorporated PewDie UK Limited in August 2015, ultimately operating as a subsidiary of parent company Pewdie Holdings AB, based in Sweden. While the full picture is harder to determine since the establishment of the group’s UK operations, the last complete set of Swedish figures from 2015 show the company earning 8.6 million U.S dollars in profit on the back of 9.3 million U.S dollars in revenue.
