Yeah, I was confused as well, as I don't follow channels directly on YouTube, but via RSS, and I've been doing that for 5+ years, at least.

For the curious, you can add a channel via this URL:

  https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=<channelid>
And follow a user via:

  https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?user=<username>



I must be misremembering. From what I remember, I used to subscribe the RSS feeds per-channel, but then they all had posts saying this feature was going away, and then they stopped working. Did they just change the URL or something?
