‘Yellowstone’ TV: Where to Watch First Three Seasons Online

by Jennifer Shea

“Yellowstone” is the most popular cable TV show of 2020. And if you haven’t seen it yet, you’re in for a treat.

Paramount is currently airing a marathon of every episode from the first three seasons of “Yellowstone.” But if you miss that, where can you go to binge-watch the show?

Unfortunately, it’s not available on Netflix or Hulu. Instead, here are the best ways to catch the show.

Watch ‘Yellowstone’ on Peacock

Peacock is a new streaming service from NBC. And it’s been doing pretty well. It debuted on Comcast this April before launching nationwide in July. In a recent memo to staff obtained by Deadline, NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell said Peacock has seen “extraordinary growth.” They’ve signed up 26 million customers so far.

There is a limited selection of shows available for free at Peacocktv.com. But you can only watch the first episode of Season 1 that way – hardly enough to really get into the show. If you truly want to see “Yellowstone,” you’ll have to sign up for Peacock Premium, which costs $4.99 per month. That gets you access to all three seasons. Each episode runs for about 40 minutes and there are nine or 10 per season.

Check the Paramount Network’s Website

If you have cable, the Paramount Network is streaming part of Season 1 and Season 2 of the show online. You’ll need your cable login to access it. 

You can get a 24-hour free pass by completing the registration process on their website. But that won’t get you access to all the episodes – just select episodes from Season 1 starting at episode five, and behind-the-scenes interviews about the episodes in Seasons 2 and 3. 

Buy Individual Episodes of ‘Yellowstone’

If you’re willing to shell out for convenience, Seasons 1-3 are available on iTunes for $49.99. And you can buy select episodes for $2.99 to $3.99 each.

On Amazon Prime, you can buy Seasons 1, 2 and 3 for $8.49 each. The first episode of each season is available for free. 

Catch It on Cable

“Yellowstone” airs on the Paramount Network. As mentioned above, Paramount is currently showing a three-day marathon of the show. Prior to the marathon, Season 3 had already aired. 

This past February, the network renewed the show for a fourth season. The cast and crew are currently filming that season now, and it should air sometime in the summer of 2021.
