PewDiePie signs exclusive live-streaming deal with YouTube
PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, has signed an exclusive deal with YouTube to live-stream on the video platform after signing with a rival service in 2018.
He is one of the most prominent internet personalities as his videos have surpassed 25 billion views and he has racked up over 104 million subscribers on his YouTube channel.
He began his journey by uploading gameplay and commentary videos on games like Minecraft, Amnesia, and Call of Duty.
Since then his content has diversified and he now uploads a range of reaction and comedy videos based on different topics, however a large part of his following still consists of members of the gaming community.
