These types of channels included: South Asian & Middle Eastern entertainment: More than 25% of the 100 most-watched YouTube channels hail from these regions of the world. Children’s programming and family content: Always a popular genre on YouTube, at least 15 kids’ channels saw improved standings in March. Music and musical artists: One of the most-searched types of content on YouTube ever, March’s leaderboard boasted at least eight channels in this genre with an increase in rankings. March 2019’s Top YouTube Channels March’s most popular YouTube channels are a testament to two of the trends noted above. All other channels in the top ten either maintained their positions from February’s leaderboard, dropped a couple of spots, or improved their rankings (as was the case for ABS-CBN’s +1 jump and Ch3Thailand’s +6 increase to land at #10).
