‘Yellowstone’ Will Air for Free on Pluto TV This Weekend, No Cable Required
Plus: other ways to watch ‘Yellowstone’ without cable.
People who have cut the cord will be able to tune in to watch Yellowstone for free this weekend on Pluto TV.
Starting Saturday, the first four seasons of Yellowstone will make their debut on Pluto TV’s More TV Drama channel, as part of Pluto’s Westerns on Pluto TV series. The chronological streaming of each season (1-4) will be showcased throughout this weekend and the next.
Pluto TV has a similar layout to plain old cable television. You essentially scroll through a bunch of channels, pick one, and then watch whatever is airing. It has some on-demand options as well, but Yellowstone will not be one of them, meaning whatever episode is airing when you pull up Pluto TV is the episode you’ll have to watch. But hey, it’s free!
Here’s the schedule for Yellowstone on Pluto TV:
Saturday, August 19
Sunday, August 20
Saturday, August 26
Sunday, August 27
Yellowstone is a creation of Paramount and was initially broadcast on the Paramount Network, a cable channel. Surprisingly, despite its origins, none of the seasons of Yellowstone are presently available for streaming on Paramount+.
In the upcoming autumn season, in light of the ongoing strikes by the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA), past episodes of Yellowstone are set to be aired on Sunday nights on CBS.
If you want to visit the Dutton family ranch after the series’ time on Pluto TV has run out — or you’d rather choose which episode to watch when you want it — then there are other ways to get your Yellowstone fix.
Seasons 1-5 are available for streaming on Peacock, which costs $5 per month.
Season 5 is available to watch for free on Philo. Yellowstone Season 5, Part 2, does not yet have a release date.
And the two prequel series, 1883 and 1923 are both available for streaming on Paramount+, which has a free trial option.
