How to Delete Subscriptions on YouTube

By Adrian Grahams

If you enjoy a particular YouTube user's video uploads, then you might have subscribed to the user's channel in the past. Subscribing to a YouTube user displays a list of his recent video uploads and favorite videos on your YouTube homepage. If you later lose interest in the user's video uploads and favorite clips, then you can easily unsubscribe from the user's channel. This removes the user's YouTube activity from your homepage.
