How to Watch Paramount Network Without Cable


How to Stream Yellowstone Season 1 On Demand

Paramount Network used to be a channel just known for movies, reality TV shows like Bar Rescue and Bellator MMA fights. 

But Paramount is emerging as a new home for prestige drama in the wake of producing Yellowstone starring Kevin Costner.

My top pick to watch Yellowstone Season 1 and Season 2 on Paramount Network is through Philo. The little-known streaming services carries 58 live TV channels, including CMT, HGTV, three Hallmark channels and OWN for $20 per month. 

Yellowstone is currently offered on demand through Philo.

You can sign up for a free 7-day trial of Philo in under a minute by using your mobile number. Then you can jump into streaming all episodes of Yellowstone, or whatever else you want on a Roku, Fire TV, Fire Stick or Apple TV. 

This guide will also show you how to watch Paramount Network without cable. I will cover all the ways to catch up on episodes of Yellowstone Season 1 and Season 2. 

Fans of the show have been pretty thrilled to learn that Season 3 of Yellowstone is already underway and set to air in 2020.

Watch Paramount Network Live Without Cable 

Not too long ago, you would have to rely on a cable or satellite TV provider — such as Comcast or DISH — to watch Paramount Network. But thanks to a wave of new streaming alternatives that carry live TV channels, that’s a thing of the past. 

Now these live TV services deliver networks like A&E, ESPN and even your local NBC station over the Internet, and at a much lower cost than a cable bundle or satellite TV package. 

Philo, fuboTV, Sling TV and AT&T Now all carry Paramount Network. All four of these services have a free trial that lasts a week. So you can easily watch a few episodes of Yellowstone (on demand), Lip Sync Battle or a Bellator match for free. 

Just remember to cancel before the trial ends if you decide that the streaming service isn’t for you. 

All you need to start out is an Internet connection, and a streaming device. A Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Fire Stick or Apple TV will do the job. And if you’re paying something like $60 per month or more for Internet, I have a few solutions you can try. You can either find a new deal for Internet without a cable package, or negotiate a better rate with your current provider. 

Stream Yellowstone Season 1 on Philo

Philo is the best deal for most people in search of a way to watch Paramount Network when it airs new TV shows and subsequent episodes.

It’s also the best way to watch Season 1 and Season 2 of Yellowstone on demand without a cable subscription. Philo does not carry any sports networks or any locals. That’s how it keeps its monthly cost of $20 per month so low. Subscribers get unlimited Cloud DVR for recordings. And you get a huge library of on-demand shows and movies.

The best way to watch Yellowstone Season 1 and Season 2 is through Philo.

You can live stream Paramount Network and 57 other channels from a Roku, Amazon Fire TV or Apple TV. Philo has apps for iPhone, iPads and Android smartphones when you’re on the go. 

And you can use your Philo subscription to activate more than 40 apps. So if you want to sign in to A&E, and catch up on an episode of 60 Days In, no problem. No cable TV provider needed. 

I have been been using Philo since late 2017. You can read my review of Philo, and easily cancel online if the service isn’t for you. Look over Philo’s channel lineup, or sign up for a free 7-day trial

If you want sports or local channels like NBC in your lineup, then here are some other options to consider.

You can look over the schedule of MMA fights airing Paramount Network and DAZN weeks in advance on the Bellator site. DAZN has some details about its subscription service, which costs $19.99 per month. You can get a discounted rate of $8.33 per month if you pay $99 for an entire year up front.
