Re: Why is Yellowstone locked on Paramoumt Network.

We signed up for Paramount+ through Roku to get Yellowstone. A new app appeared under Roku on our TV for Paramount+ under Roku. Within that App there is no mention of Yellowstone. It then showed up on Hulu which then means we have to watch commercials. What does Hulu have to do with this???

Unless you got the ad-free Paramount+, you would still have ads.

I’m guessing you mean Hulu with Live TV. That includes the Paramount Network which is showing Yellowstone.

And as you've noticed, neither Paramount+ nor the Paramount Network include 100% of the other's content.

Re: Why is Yellowstone locked on Paramoumt Network.

Paramount originally released Yellowstone on its Paramount cable channel, before Paramount+ streaming channel was created. Paramount continues to release new seasons of Yellowstone on Paramount, not on Paramount+.

In order to view Paramount on streaming devices like Roku, the Paramount requires you to be paying for it via a login to a paid "tv provider" account (cable, satellite, etc.) that carries the Paramount channel.

"Hulu" comes into the picture because Hulu's Live TV optional tier is one of the paid subscription streaming services that includes the Paramount cable channel, and so provides access to Yellowstone.

That's because @bee2 , not you, posted the original question in this thread. This forum software will only let the original poster (or a Roku moderator) deem what was a solution.
