Is Yellowstone streaming?

Strangely, the flagship Yellowstone series isn’t available to stream on Paramount Plus in the US, so you’ll have to watch it as part of a paid Peacock subscription or catch up On Demand on the Paramount Network.

You can also buy by episode or season on Prime Video. If you’re in the UK or Canada, then you can stream the entire Yellowstone series on Paramount Plus. Confusing, we know.
