Can you customize the notification from your subscribed channel? Yes, you can.

When you subscribe to a YouTube channel, a bell icon will appear and the bell setting will be set to Personalized setting by default (there is an exception: if you subscribed to a video channel that is made for kids, the bell setting will automatically be set to no notifications).

The Personalization setting is ideal for the subscribed channels that are very heavy on notifiable content. This because the setting will stop you from being bombarded whilst but allow you to receive the notifications that YouTube feels will be of relevance.

If you want to customize the bell setting, click the notification bell and switch from the Personalized setting to the All settings or the None setting. The All setting allows you to receive every notification about activity on your subscribed channel. Enabling the None setting means you won’t receive any notifications from the channel.
