What Is Your Favorite YouTube Channel Right Now? [We Ask You]

YouTube is ubiquitous at this juncture. If someone shares a viral video, and insists you watch it, chances are it will be on YouTube. Sure, there are alternatives to YouTube, but the Google-owned site is the most popular service for watching videos by quite a margin.

What has helped foster this rise to the top are the channels which have managed to build regular and returning audiences. Which is what this week’s We Ask You is all about.

If you have a favorite YouTube then this is your opportunity to share it with the rest of us.

Champion Channel Choosers

We want to know, What Is Your Favorite YouTube Channel Right Now? There are literally millions of channels available to explore. Most of them are pointless and/or terrible, as they contain nothing but a handful of videos no one wants to watch. And that includes us, so please don’t recommend them.

Thankfully, there are also some amazing channels available on YouTube. These are updated often, full of videos that everybody should watch at least once, and home to bona fide Internet celebrities who have made a name (and face) for themselves on YouTube. It is these channels that we want to hear about right now.

Simply tell us what YouTube channels you subscribe to and which you think other people should also start watching. The genre is immaterial; as long as the content is up to scratch then we don’t mind whether it’s comedy, science, music, technology, or any other subject matter you care to mention.

Those in need of some inspiration – because let’s face it, the Internet has given us all memories like goldfish – need look no further than MakeUseOf itself, as we have shared plenty of irresistible and unmissable YouTube channels over the years…

These are listed just to inspire you, but if one of those mentioned is your favorite YouTube channel at the moment then feel free to promote it below. Otherwise, be original. From PewDiePie to Smosh, from Nigahiga to the Vlogbrothers, all are welcome.

    My three favorite are these:

    1) https://www.youtube.com/user/CGPGrey
    This one has interesting stuff about, well, anything. It is spoken very fast, and because of that I am kind of glued to the screen, even if it’s about my least favorite subject. (Side note: my teachers usually see me dozing off in class)

    2) https://www.youtube.com/user/minutephysics
    The name says it all: in one minute they explain a physical phenomenon and even make it funny and understandable.

    3) https://www.youtube.com/user/patrickJMT
    I don’t like this one as much for just wandering around youtube, but if I get stuck in my maths, this channel has the answer.

    Okay, I’m going to add a fourth one, I feel like a nerd right now.

    4) https://www.youtube.com/user/TommyEdisonXP
    A blind man explains how his life is – and tries to understand how life with sight would be. Very funny and a bit informative (I’m sorry, apparently I am a nerd).

    Normally I skip answering these “We ask you” articles and wait to see what people say but I felt I needed to bring this one up. I love watching Robbaz as he hilariously plays a ton of games and jokes around. Many many hours spent watching his crazy antics. I really think anyone checking this out (whether they are a gamer or not) will not be disappointed.

    Link to his channel:

      I’m really glad you took the trouble to comment. We appreciate it. A couple of the Robbaz videos cracked me up. Definitely bookmarking.

    I have two. Those are pbsideachannel, it has tons of interesting stuff, from science to ethics to religion, anything that can make you think and maybe challenge your views about something and the other is Gopher, an awesome guy that makes very very well done let’s play of videogames. Incredible sense of humour and extremely well roleplayed

    • Dave P

      Both good choices. Gopher especially looks like my cup of tea.

  • Justin P

    CGP Grey forever.

    • Dave P

      That’s definitely a channel to get lost in for hours at a time. I’ve seen you recommend him so often I’m starting to think you are actually CGP Grey.

    • Justin P

      I wish…

    I don’t have one. I have lots.
    1. Matthew Santoro – Comedy videos with cool and interesting facts. I love his commentary and his alter ego Eugene who makes occasional appearances. My favourite video: youtu.be/gVc1AqQ3k58

    2. WahBanana! – This one’s a comedy channel which caters to Asian audiences but there’s a white guy in the cast. They are based in Singapore. My favourite video: youtu.be/EDHY6qkpW6o

    3. TreePotatoes – These guys were the original cast of WahBanana! before they left to start their own channel. In the same mold but much funnier and wackier. My favourite video: youtu.be/J8SZ_uAvMa8

    4. Vsauce – Of course, how could anyone forget this one? My favourite video: youtu.be/PEikGKDVsCc

    • Dave P

      All great choices! At least a couple of these are sure to make our list :)
