If you were unaware of a YouTube channel named PewDiePie, you might definitely have come to know about it recently. This is because PewDiePie is currently the most subscribed channel on YouTube. This channel has more than 75 million subscribers. PewDiePie, the YouTube channel, is run by a Swedish YouTuber named Felix Kjellberg.
However, this crown of being the most subscribed channel is under threat. This is because an Indian music label channel named T-Series is within touching distance of PewDiePie’s subscriber mark. However, this battle has been ongoing from the past 2-3 months.
Now, it is known as the greatest YouTube battle of all time. This is popularly named as PewDiePie v/s T-Series. And to not let PewDiePie be defeated, his 75 million strong army of fans are doing all that is possible to not let that happen.
We have seen that various YouTubers have come out in support of PewDiePie and have urged their fans to subscribe to PewDiePie’s YouTube channel. Their defense is that it is not fair for a company to compete with an individual creator and defeat him.
On the other hand, T-Series has not made any serious attempts to increase their subscriber count and they are going on their merry way. But PewDiePie fans have no one to stop them and they are still trying their best. In the latest attack on T-Series, some of PewDiePie fans have hacked people’s Chromecasts.
This hack is due to the router setting present in Google Chromecast and Google Home devices which makes them publicly visible. This way, they can be connected to other devices on the internet too. Once the Chromecasts and Google Homes are connected, PewDiePie fans are displaying a message to subscribe to his YouTube channel.
Reportedly, this hack has been conducted by two hackers namely HackerGiraffe and j3ws3r. Share your views about this in the comment section below!
