It’s time for another installment of our monthly Tubefilter Top 100 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Chart and a channel all for the very young kids these days is still at the top.
DisneyCollectorBR remains in the #1 spot this month with some still-massive viewership. The internet’s go-to online destination for videos featuring adults playing with children’s toys saw a 12% month-over-month increase in views to top out just shy of 477.5 million views in the 31 days of March. LittleBabyBum and its repository of classic Western songs for your English-speaking kids came in second place, up 22% on the month to amass almost 385.1 million views.
Taylor Swift is next up third place. The country-turned-pop star’s music video library’s view count shook off a marginal number of views to bottom out with more than 355.5 million views on the month. Mashamedvedtv is up next in the #4 spot. The YouTube channel that’s home to the seemingly very popular Russian cartoon Маша и Медведь was up 5% on the month and scored more than up more than 323.1 million views.
And rounding out the Top 5 is GetMovies. The other popular channel that hails from Russia and is full of Russian cartoons racked up more than 311.2 million views on the month.
Savvy online video viewers will notice that Felix Kjellberg‘s PewDiePie channel is not in the Top 5 this month. Looking at our data, the channel saw a negative view count during February 2015 numbering in the 100s of millions. That could be an error on behalf of YouTube or it could be the result of a legitimate view count audit. The world’s largest video sharing site sometimes makes mistakes when tallying view counts and then later may take away views from a channel if the company finds a miscalculation. But regardless of how the situation came to be, the data we receive from YouTube is the data we’re sticking with. We’ll update the numbers ASAP if we receive any updated metrics or information.
The honor of one our Top Gainers this month goes to NBC‘s The Voice.
Since The Voice‘s eighth season made its television debut on February 23, 2015, NBC has posted a massive amount of video clips to the show’s YouTube home. In March, all of those dozens of videos in aggregate helped give the channel a 42% month-over-month increase in views, almost 91.8 million views and the #90 spot on the worldwide chart.
The Top 100 Most Viewed YouTube channels this month amassed in aggregate a total of 15,762,537,264 views. Here’s a look at the distribution of those channels broken down by the most-represented YouTube Multi-Channel Networks on the chart:
