Where to watch Yellowstone season 5 (and the season premiere for free)

Yellowstone is a hugely popular show that looks at the conflicts between a large cattle ranch, a Native American reservation, and greedy land developers. The show stars Kevin Costner as John Dutton, the gruff but likable patriarch of a cattle dynasty who tries to fend off competitors and rein in his unruly family. Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, and Wes Bentley star as Dutton’s children, who have their own set of troubles.

With a fantastic cast and storylines that mix soap opera and red-state social commentary, Yellowstone follows the melodramatics of the Dutton family as well as the conflicts between warring landowners in Big Sky country. The show, created by Taylor Sheridan and John Linson, has streamed four seasons so far and its massive success shows no signs of stopping.

If you crave Dallas-style drama mixed with lots of cattle, guns, and plaid shirts, then Yellowstone is for you. The show is a huge streaming hit, and has already spawned a multiverse of sorts, with 1883 airing a year ago and another prequel, 1923, is now streaming its first episode with Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren in the lead roles.

Don’t take our word for it, though. Yellowstone currently has an 83% on the Tomatometer and a 57 on Metacritic.

Where to watch all Doctor Who seasons right now
Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor in the opening credits of classic Doctor Who

Doctor Who is one of the most prolific television franchises of all time, with its core series boasting nearly 900 episodes in total. There’s a tremendous archive of stories for fans to dig into, but outside of the UK, where they are consolidated on the BBC iPlayer, those stories are split across multiple streaming platforms. If you’re a completionist, watching everything may require some bouncing around, but we’ve done most of the homework for you.
Here’s how American viewers can explore the entire Whoniverse from their couch.

Most of classic Doctor Who is on Tubi
The majority of the original run of Doctor Who, which aired from 1963 to 1989 and featured the first seven incarnations of the beloved Time Lord, is available to stream for free outside of the UK on Tubi. Tubi began streaming classic Who in 2023 in commemoration of the show’s 60th birthday, offering episodes on-demand, as well as hosting a channel that streams the show 24 hours a day.
Tubi’s library even includes a number of animated episodes created by the BBC over the past few decades to replace chapters that have seen the original footage go missing. A sizable chunk of the 1960s run was lost shortly after broadcast due to BBC’s then-commonplace practice of erasing and reusing tapes of old programs that they imagined no one would miss. Some episodes are still missing, but thanks to decades of work by archivists, animators, and fans, nearly the entire missing portion of Patrick Troughton’s tenure as the Second Doctor can be seen once again, albeit in a different form than its producers had imagined.
However, there are some curious gaps in Tubi’s archive that can be filled on a different streaming service…
