Number Phile was launched on one of the interesting dates of the year i.e. 11/11/11 (11th November, 2011 - Friday) with its YouTube channel dedicated entirely to numbers. Youtube is dedicating for this amazing channel and for the first time it is investing money in original content with $100m into this challenge to the TV industry, which will involve another 99 channels besides numberphile. 

Numberphile produced by the video journalist Brady Haran, who also makes the excellent Periodic Videos covering chemistry topics and Sixty Symbols covering physics. From January 2012 numberphile started producing two videos a week afters it success in short period of time almost reaching to a lakh ( Currently,96,285 subscribers)

"Each video will be about a number," says James Grime, one of numberphile's presenters, who already has his own YouTube channel and also runs our sister project Enigma. "The potentially infinite series of videos will include programmes on how the number 11 helps your CD to play, how the square root of 2 is used to make paper, and why the number 20 is called God's number".

It's great to see maths feature in YouTube's offensive on the broadcasting world. "It is exciting to see that YouTube have commissioned a broad range of channels, including channels like numberphile, among the other entertainment and sports channels," says Grime. "I think it reflects the broad range of interests people who use YouTube have."
