Are you hearing all the hype about the television drama Yellowstone?

Which TV Channel Broadcasts Yellowstone?
Yellowstone broadcasts new episodes on the Paramount Network. You can access this network both live and on-demand through select cable, satellite and live streaming TV services.
If you’re looking for the Paramount Network on DIRECTV, it’s available in HD on Channel 241.
If you’re looking for the Paramount Network on Dish Network, it’s available in HD on Channel 241.
There are three seasons of Yellowstone for a total of 29 episodes that have aired on the network so far.
The fourth season of Yellowstone is set to debut on Paramount Network in Summer 2021.
Season 3 aired on Sunday nights at 9 p.m., but there has not been an official announcement yet on a time slot for Season 4.
Note: The Paramount Network is not to be confused with ViacomCBS’s new streaming service Paramount+. At this time, Paramount+ does not stream Yellowstone.
How To Stream Yellowstone On Demand
If you’re looking to binge-watch all three seasons of Yellowstone, you have a few different options.
The first is likely the most simple and cost-effective solution: Subscribe to NBC’s Peacock.
Stream Yellowstone on Peacock
Peacock, which is an on-demand streaming service that NBC launched in 2020, has exclusive streaming rights to Yellowstone.
While there is a free version of Peacock that will give you a taste of the series, you’re going to have to pay to get the full catalog of episodes.
Here’s how it works:
|Peacock Subscription Level||Monthly Fee||Access to Yellowstone|
|Peacock||Free||90-minute pilot episode only|
|Peacock Premium||$4.99 (free to select Xfinity users)||Seasons 1-3 with commercials|
|Peacock Premium Plus||$9.99||Seasons 1-3 without commercials|
3 Other On-Demand Streaming Options
Other options for on-demand streaming of Yellowstone are not as ideal.
First, you could buy episodes or seasons of the show from Amazon. These typically run $2.99 per episode or $19.99 per season.
Second, you can use the cloud DVR functionality from one of the live TV services listed above to record the episodes of the show as they air both in real-time debuts and as reruns on Paramount Network.
This will require several weeks of waiting for reruns to cycle through the Paramount Network programming schedule. And you’ll face lots of fast forwarding through commercials.
Lastly, you could use the login credentials from your cable, satellite or streaming subscriptions to access the premium content from Paramount Network’s website or app. But a quick glance at the Yellowstone catalog on Paramount Network’s website indicates that you won’t have access to every episode.
Best Value On-Demand Streaming Option for Yellowstone: Peacock Premium
If you can stand the commercials associated with Peacock Premium, you can view the entire catalog of Yellowstone’s three seasons for just $4.99 per month.
If skipping commercials is a must for you, your best option is paying $9.99 for Peacock Premium Plus.
Live Streaming Services That Offer Yellowstone
If you’re a cord-cutter who is looking for ways to stream Yellowstone as it airs on television, you’ll need to find a live streaming service that offers the Paramount Network.
Here’s a look at the popular live streaming services that offer the Paramount Network and how much it costs to get the subscription package necessary to stream Yellowstone:
|Live Streaming Service||Offers Paramount Network||Monthly Subscription Price|
|Hulu + Live TV||No||$64.99|
|Sling TV Orange||Yes, with add-on||$35 + $6 channel add-on|
|Sling TV Blue||No||$35|
Best Value Option for Livestreaming Yellowstone: Philo
At just $20 per month, Philo is the most cost-effective way to get the Paramount Network. Of course, you’ll want to make sure the rest of Philo’s channel menu is sufficient for your streaming needs.
You can also live stream the Paramount Network with login credentials for certain cable and satellite television providers. An existing subscription would be required to use that method.

Here is a quick guide to some common questions about the show:
Yellowstone is a drama based in present-day Montana near the Yellowstone National Park.
Kevin Costner’s character, John Dutton, is a sixth-generation rancher who is holding control of a large plot of land that has been in his family for years.
But protecting that land for his family is more than it seems on the surface.
The Dutton family, which in its modern form is dysfunctional at best, has to ward off multiple adversaries intent on taking ownership of the land. This includes the leader of a local Native American reservation and a host of investors looking to get rich off the picturesque Western terrain.
The show tells the story of the family’s struggles both on and off the Yellowstone Dutton Ranch.
