‘Yellowstone’: How to watch every episode of the hit drama anywhere

With its raw portrayal of family legacy and changes in the mountains of Montana, the Kevin Costner-led drama Yellowstone has become one of the biggest TV shows of the century to date.

The neo-western centers on the Dutton family and their enormous ranch, an estate that puts them in constant tension with aggressive developers, the residents of the neighboring Broken Rock Indian Reservation and of course the ever-encroaching nearby Yellowstone National Park .

Created by Taylor Sheridan, the show has had five seasons and a series of spin-offs, with the final season premiere drawing a staggering audience of 16 million viewers to become the most-watched linear TV show in America, after NFL Football.

The first four seasons of the show, along with part one of season 5, are all available to watch on-demand now, with season 5 part 2 following in November. So if you want to delve into the trials and tribulations of the Dutton family, read our guide below to streaming every episode of Yellowstone, and why you might want to pair your binge-watch with a VPN.

How to watch every season of Yellowstone on Peacock

Although Yellowstone has become one of Paramount Network’s biggest shows, somewhat surprisingly you won’t find a single season of the show on the network’s streaming service, Paramount Plus.

Instead, you’ll find every episode of the show on rival streaming service Peacock, thanks to an exclusive deal that makes it the only subscription service streaming the hit drama.

However, it’s worth noting that Yellowstone spin-off shows like 1883 and 1923 are exclusive to Paramount Plus in the US and are not available on Peacock.

Peacock offers two Premium plans. The ad-supported Premium plan costs $6 per month, and the ad-free Premium plan costs $12 per month. You can use either Premium subscription to watch episodes of Yellowstone.

How to watch Yellowstone episodes from anywhere with a VPN

Maybe you’re traveling abroad and want to stream Peacock while you’re away from home. A VPN allows you to virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop so you can access the show from anywhere in the world. There are also other good reasons to use a VPN for streaming.

A VPN is the best way to encrypt your traffic and prevent your ISP from throttling your speeds. Using a VPN is also a good idea if you’re traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network and want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and logins. Streaming TV can be a little smoother with a reliable, high-quality VPN that has passed our testing and security standards.

You can use a VPN to stream content legally, as long as VPNs are allowed in your country and you have a valid subscription to the streaming service you are using. The US and Canada are among the countries where VPNs are legal, but we don’t recommend streaming or downloading content from illegal torrent sites. We recommend ExpressVPN, but you can also choose another provider from our best list, such as Surfshark or NordVPN.

Follow the VPN provider’s installation instructions and choose a country where Yellowstone will stream on Peacock. Before you open the streaming app, make sure you’re connected to your VPN through your selected region. If you want to stream Yellowstone episodes on more than one device, you may need to configure each device to make sure you’re signed in. Go to settings and check your network connections to verify that you are logged in and connected to your VPN account. Now you’re ready to open Peacock for streaming.

If you’re having trouble streaming, first make sure your VPN is active on the encrypted IP address. Double-check that you have followed the installation instructions correctly and that you have chosen the correct geographic area to view. If you are still experiencing connection issues, you may need to restart your device. Close all apps and windows, restart your device and connect to your VPN first. Please note that some streaming services have restrictions on VPN access.
