Yellowstone has been one of the biggest shows on TV since it premiered in 2018. The Kevin Costner-led drama has gorgeous cinematography, characters that people enjoy watching even when they’re being mean to each other, and family dynamics that are so crazy, it’s hard to wrap your head around them sometimes. It all makes for riveting TV. Taylor Sheridan has built the Yellowstone universe to include two other spinoff shows since the premiere of Yellowstone.

Streaming

The Yellowstone series airs exclusively on the Paramount Network. But, because of streaming rights, you actually can’t watch previous Yellowstone seasons on Paramount Plus. Netflix or Hulu are also not options.

On Peacock

Yellowstone on Peacock

Peacock has exclusive rights to stream Yellowstone on demand. Although new episodes only air on the Paramount Network, you’ll be able to watch older episodes without needing a cable subscription.

  1. Download the app: Peacock is available for download on Google Playstore and the iOS App store. You can also watch this on your smart TV by downloading the app there.
  2. Create an account: This automatically gives you access to hundreds of binge-worthy movies and TV series, including Yellowstone. If you are a new customer, you’ll have to choose for either the Peacock Premium or Peacock Premium Plus account, as the free account is no longer an option. If you had a free Peacock account though, you are grandfathered in and can watch some content for free.
  3. Watch Yellowstone Seasons 1-4: Once you’ve created an account on Peacock, you’ll be able to watch the show. You can also use the 7-day free trial of Peacock Premium to watch the show. (Maybe you can binge it fast enough and watch all four seasons in that time and not have to pay).

If you aren’t able to finish streaming Yellowstone for free on Peacock before the free trial ends, you can continue watching the series by subscribing to Peacock Premium or Peacock Premium Plus. The plans cost $4.99 and $9.99 per month respectively. But you may want to keep an eye on deals, as there are some that allow you to lock in a discounted rate for the service.

Amazon Prime Video
