In the video, one of the interviewees, a boy dressed in a blue shirt, voiced his support for PewDiePie and provided a number of insights into why T-Series is rapidly getting subscribers, linking the growth of the channel to the YouTube algorithm and spread of Jio telecommunications network in India.
- Why do you think T-Series is so big in India?
- Okay, first of all, the YouTube algorithm. They post like 20 videos a day.[…]
- So what's your understanding of the [PewDiePie vs. T-Series] situation?
- The top individual creator is since PewDiePie, so it doesn't make a difference. And even if he's not, he's making the same content, it doesn't matter if he's above or below T-Series in any way. Not to me at least.
