Here’s the crux of the article in video form

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on November 14, 2022) follows:

Paramount Network’s one of the most successful shows, Yellowstone, is back with season 5 which was scheduled to air on November 13.

Naturally, some people took to Paramount Plus to watch the show only to find that it wasn’t available on the online streaming platform.

That said, a number of reports (1,2,3,4,5) have emerged showing people’s agitation upon discovering the unavailability of the latest season of Yellowstone on Paramount Plus in the United States.

Why do you make it so hard to watch your show? I have a @paramountplus account but can I watch @Yellowstone? Nope! Ridiculous!

Sigh… so now Yellowstone is only going to be on Paramount Network, not Paramount Plus? And if I don’t have a provider for live TV, I’m just out of luck?


Apparently, the owners of Peacock (NBCUniversal) had purchased the streaming rights to Yellowstone in 2020 even before Paramount Plus was released.

It gave Peacock streaming services exclusive rights to stream the show where viewers would pay a nominal subscription fee.

But many users already bought a Paramount Plus subscription thinking that if the show is available on Paramount cable TV, it will automatically be present on the streaming platform too.

Yellowstone also unavailable on Amazon Prime

Even those on Amazon Prime with the Paramount Plus add-on are disappointed to find that Yellowstone season 5 is not available.

Even with an Amazon Prime subscription, viewers weren’t able to get their hands on the show (1,2,3,4,5).

What the hell, @paramountnet. I’ve tried watching through my Paramount+ subscripx on Amazon Prime. Can’t. Tried newly subscribing thru the @paramountplus app via xfinity. No go. Why is is this so difficult?! How can a fan watch now? #customerfail


To further rub in their wounds, Amazon Prime is asking subscribers to part with $39.99 to watch the entire Season 5, which many find ridiculous.

Unfortunately, there has been no comment on the issue regarding the unavailability of Yellowstone on Paramount Plus and Amazon Prime so far.

In that case, viewers with an existing subscription to the said streaming platforms have to overlook this fact and need to buy Peacock’s subscription if they are in dire need of watching the show.

We’ll keep tabs on the issue and update this space to reflect noteworthy information so stay tuned.

Update 2 (November 16, 2022)

01:00 pm (IST): Many Peacock subscribers are confused (1,2,3) as to why the fifth season of Yellowstone is not available on the platform.
