When Yellowstone started airing on the Paramount Network on 20 June 2018, nobody knew it would become the biggest hit on cable TV.
Initially, Yellowstone only attracted less than three million people during its first episode. By the end of season four, the number had increased to over 14 million.
The series aired on both the Paramount Network and CMT. But can you watch Yellowstone on Paramount Plus?
Paramount Plus is a subscription video-on-demand over-the-top streaming service. It offers original and library content from CBS.
However, you must subscribe at a fee of $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year to access its content.
Unfortunately, Yellowstone is the only content or television show from Paramount that you cannot find on Paramount Plus. That means you cannot stream the Yellowstone season finale on Paramount Plus.
Will season 4 of Yellowstone be on Paramount Plus?
Yellowstone season four is not available on Paramount Plus. That is because the TV series did not receive a license from ViacomCBS to stream on the platform. But that does not mean you cannot watch Yellowstone online.
You can only stream Yellowstone on the Paramount app. The Paramount Network app gives you access to the latest episodes of your favourite Paramount Network shows, including full seasons of select TV series and other exclusive content.
However, you require a cable subscription to gain access. The app is available for Android phones and tablets, Roku and TV players, iPhone and iPad, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire TV.

What is the difference between Paramount Network and Paramount Plus?
There is a difference between Paramount Plus and Paramount Network, despite offering almost the same content.
Paramount, or Paramount Network, is a traditional cable channel. Therefore, you require a paid or cable subscription to access its movies and TV shows, including Yellowstone.
On the other hand, Paramount Plus is a streaming service that does not require a live TV subscription to access the content. Instead, you have to subscribe to a monthly fee to stream movies and TV shows, excluding Yellowstone.
Will Paramount shows be on Paramount Plus?
Paramount Plus and Paramount Network are services owned by ViacomCBS. That means most of the content overlap between the services.
Therefore, most of the shows broadcast on the Paramount Network are also available on Paramount Plus. However, ViacomCBS chooses which TV shows and movies to air on both platforms.
If the show you want to watch is available online, you can stream it on Paramount Plus or ParamountNetwork.com. The difference is that Paramount Plus requires a monthly subscription while ParamountNetwork.com requires a cable TV subscription.
You cannot watch Yellowstone in its entire series on Paramount Plus. Instead, you can stream it on ParamountNetwork.com or Paramount Network app.
But before streaming, you require an active subscription with a cable TV provider. Some options include Dish, DirecTV, Spectrum, Comcast Xfinity, Verizon, and AT&T.
Alternatively, you can stream the TV show on Peacock TV or subscribe to a live-channel streaming service like YouTube TV, Philo, or Sling TV.
