The Right Channel For Yellowstone On DirecTV

You can watch new episodes of Yellowstone on Directv on Channel 241 when they come out in Summer 2023.

To watch previous episodes and seasons of the main Yellowstone series, you have two options.

The first is to sign up for the Peacock streaming service to watch online.  Because Paramount didn’t know that Yellowstone would be such a hit, they sold the streaming rights to Comcast.

Another option that you have is to watch past episodes via online DVR.

You can go to the Paramount Channel site to log in with your Directv account or you can just go to Directv stream and log in and watch past episodes.

Looking at the schedule for the Paramount channel for a couple of weeks, it’s mostly Bar Rescue and Two and A Half Men reruns.

I wish it was easier to just change the channel to the Paramount Channel and watch an episode Yellowstone when it’s on but they made it really complicated.

What Channel is Paramount Plus On DirecTV

Paramount Plus is not a channel on Directv – it’s a streaming service and if you want to watch it on your TV, you need to download the Paramount Plus app on your TV.

You can do that if you have a smart TV that allows you to download apps.  Otherwise, you should consider getting a Chromecast or Roku device that will allow you to easily cast Paramount Plus.

While it’s a newer technology, streaming services like Paramount Plus have several advantages over having just a regular channel on cable.

With Paramount Plus, you can watch all the episodes of your favorite shows whenever and wherever you want.  Places you can watch include your TV, your computer, and your phone.

Some of our favorite shows available on Paramount Plus today include Star Trek Picard and Mayor of Kingston.  Something exciting that’s happening soon is that Showtime and Paramount Plus are merging.

That means you’ll soon be able to watch the new seasons and spin-offs of Billions and Dexter.

Please note the main Yellowstone series with Kevin Costner is not available currently on Paramount Plus.  You can watch Yellowstone 1883 and 1923 only on Paramount Plus though.

You can sign up for Paramount Plus at the link below.

What Other Shows Are On The Paramount Channel

Besides Yellowstone, there are other great shows on the Paramount Channel that you can watch when you have DirecTV.

Some of their biggest hits are Bar Rescue and Ink Master.

Whether you live in Boston or Seattle, the right place for people with Directv to watch the Paramount Channel is Channel 241.

Right now, new episodes of Bar Rescue are airing on Sundays at 10/9 Central Time.

Looking through the Paramount Channel schedule for the next couple of weeks, Bar Rescue and reruns of Two and a Half Men are what you’re going to find when you tune into the channel.
