Best way to watch Yellowstone online in the U.S.

The best way to watch Yellowstone online is by signing up to Paramount+. The fairly new streaming service offers all things Paramount as well as a significant chunk of the CBS catalog. Besides including Paramount movies and all things Star Trek, Paramount Plus is also the home of Yellowstone’s prequel show, 1883. Yellowstone is available to stream on Paramount Plus in HD.

Currently, users can sign up for a seven-day free trial of Paramount+ if they have not used the service before. After the seven-day trial period, it’s possible to sign up for one of two Paramount+ plans. The Essential plan costs $5 per month and includes some ads to support the service. The other option is to sign up for the Premium plan for $10 per month. This means users can enjoy an ad-free experience as well as be able to download Yellowstone to watch offline when they need to.

How to watch Yellowstone from anywhere in the world

If you regularly travel abroad but still wish to watch Paramount+, there is a way of keeping up with Yellowstone. Even if you’re visiting a country that doesn’t ordinarily have access to Paramount+, you can use a VPN to log into your Paramount+ account to watch your favorite shows.

A VPN works by allowing you to choose a U.S.-based server while traveling to a different country. From there, you can log into your Paramount+ account with the service assuming you’re still at home. You then have access to all the usual shows you’d be able to watch from the comfort of home.

The best VPN for streaming is ExpressVPN. It offers high speeds, reliability, and includes plenty of servers so you can easily find one that allows you to stream as if you were at home.
