AIB, TVF Become The First Indian Creator Groups to Cross 1 Million Subscribers on YouTube

By: Gizbot Bureau

The YouTube channel of All India Bakchod (AIB), the comedy collective which was recently in the news for a 'roast', has amassed over one million subscribers.

AIB and online youth entertainment network The Viral Fever (TVF), which too has crossed one million subscribers, have become the first independent creator groups in India to have such a following, and are now amongst the most subscribed creator channels across Asia.

"One million subscribers holds special significance as usually it is the traditional media companies who have 5,000 to 10,000 videos that gain million plus subscribers. TVF has just 107 videos for now, and over 30 videos of the network have gone viral so far and have millions of views. Our next target is to get at least 5 to 10 million viewers every month," said Arunabh Kumar, founding member, TVF.
