Watch yellowstone season 2

At least with YouTube’s popularity, most films and TV shows eventually get to Google Play Movies. The same cannot be said of Google’s music services, where content availability and tardiness is magnitudes worse. Google Play Music gets many new releases at midnight like iTunes and Spotify for purchase, but it can take hours, days, or even months for new albums to arrive on Google Play Music’s subscription catalog.

Things get even worse on YouTube Music, because yes, you do have an ungodly amount of music available, but the legal, label-uploaded music is absolutely unpredictable. New albums on YouTube Music might show up on time if you’re lucky, but there are still a number of labels that will put music on Google Play Music immediately but only upload on YouTube Music weeks or months later over piracy concerns, which aren’t entirely unfounded. Albums — new and old — are routinely pulled from the service and only some of them ever return.

Hey, @youtubemusic, you finally added one of my favorite Disney soundtracks after weeks of begging and then took it away not five days later. Why, and what the hell?!!?!

— Ara Wagoner📱🏰🎶 (@AraWagco) July 16, 2018

I spent last summer begging YouTube Music to give me the Disney albums I wanted to listen to, but until they did, I listened to what was there: the illegally fan-uploaded versions of the content I wanted. I didn’t feel great about it, but without the proper albums and songs, users play what’s there, and with YouTube Music, what’s there is a decade of lyric videos, concert covers and straight album uploads.

Piracy will always be an issue that the media industry faces, and when the legal stores and subscriptions we use to support content we like — and sate our fangirl addictions — fails to give us the content we pay for time and time again, that urge to revert to our pirating roots gets stronger and stronger. And really, why would you wait for the paid episodes to show up later when the free, illegal one in on YouTube seconds after the episode is over?

You can stream TV shows and movies with Google Play if you pay per title. Some titles are even available for free, which is great if you just want to try out a couple episodes of a new show before totally committing. The price of buying TV show episodes varies, but at the time of our testing most were $1.99. Renting a movie is also pretty affordable, but some new releases require you buy them at full price, which can be around $14.99. The upside is you own the movie and can watch it as much as you want. But what if you don’t like the movie? One way to avoid buyer’s remorse is to take a look at the detailed information accompanying each movie, including its run time, trailer, Google user reviews and Rotten Tomatoes score.

Rental times vary by title, so make sure to read the fine print toward the bottom of the page. With some movies you must start watching it within 30 days and then finish it within 48 hours of starting it. With others you have a full 72 hours to finish it. Like most streaming websites, you can cast Google Play onto your TV with a Chromecast or watch on your computer or tablet. There are also parental controls available in the Google Play settings tab to make sure the younger members of your household aren’t viewing things they shouldn’t.

To select your entertainment you can search the website by genre, studio or TV network. It’s a well-designed system that’s easy to use. All of this can be done via the website’s app as well, so it’s easy to watch titles riding shotgun on a long road trip or waiting in an airport. We know there’s a lot of password sharing that happens with movie streaming websites, but the Google Play Family Library lets you share your purchases with up to five family members on the up-and-up. This applies to movies, apps and even games. On top of that there are no commercials, just like Netflix! Isn’t that great!

What makes Google Play unique is its vast selection of shows from traditional TV channels like ABC, A&E, Bravo and Cartoon Network. There is also content from other streaming companies, like Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale.” We were bummed out when we realized some episodes aren’t available individually though, and you have to purchase the entire series, which can be pricey. The Kevin Costner series “Yellowstone,” for example, had some episodes available for individual purchase, some viewable for free and others only available if you bought the entire season. We imagine it would be frustrating to spend a little cash on a couple episodes only to realize you have to spend significantly more if you want to binge-watch the entire season. Once you buy a season, you’ll gain access to new episodes as they air if it’s an ongoing program.

Some of our testers simply preferred the subscription model where you get access to unlimited content, but they still found some things they liked about Google Play. For instance, the star rating system is easy to see if you’re unsure of what to watch. Another tester said the categories are broad, which means you see more content if you’re searching by genre. You might love that, or you might feel overwhelmed. Another critique had to do with the mobile app, which for some reason wouldn’t let us purchase anything. You seemingly have to set your purchases up ahead of time and then can view them through the app while you’re out and about. Based on input from six testers, this service earned a B for ease of use.

If you’re a binge watcher, Google Play is not for you. We also didn’t like that the advertised prices for some titles are for standard definition viewing. If you want clearer HD picture, you have to pay more. Google Play doesn’t have any original content, but if you’re just looking for episodes of the ongoing season of “Law & Order: SVU” then Google Play will work just fine.

New Episodes Propagating to Google Play Music

– While we still have not heard back from GPM, based on what we are seeing we believe this issue is now resolved.

Our support team has become aware of issues with new episodes propagating to Google Play Music for some producers. Other directories are still currently pulling content without issue, and from our investigation, all cases are specific to Google Play Music.

If you are noticing your latest episode is not appearing in Google Play Music, try to log into your Google Play Music Portal:

Once logged in, the status of the episodes in your feed should be visible. If you see your latest episode as processing, that means that their system sees the episode, but has yet to pull it. Typically, once any issues on their end are resolved, processing episodes will release for subscribers as normal.

Our team has reached out to Google Play Music to report this issue to their team. We will post any updates as they come in. Any additional questions, please reach out to [email protected]

Here’s how you can watch Yellowstone season 1 and 2

In case you haven’t heard, Paramount Network’s Big Sky Country drama Yellowstone is a big hit, and it appears there’s no ceiling in sight for the show’s viewership numbers.

Over the course of Yellowstone’s first two seasons, the series has surprised many industry insiders by becoming one of the most-watched series on television, earning as many as five million viewers per episode. In reaching those numbers, the Kevin Costner-starring Western melodrama has also become one of the most talked-about show around, and continues to build buzz with it’s savvy blend of political intrigue, family drama, and classic Western motifs.

If you don’t yet count yourself among the show’s growing fandom, we’ll fill you in. Yellowstone is set on the fringes of the titular national park, and follows the ongoing battles of the Dutton family (headed by Kevin Costner’s John Dutton) as they try to defend their ranch from the likes of dodgy land developers, greedy businessmen, local indigenous tribes, and unscrupulous politicians. From that caustic mix of characters, series creator Taylor Sheridan crafts a fiery neo-Western saga about modern-day cowboys clinging to the ways of the past by any means necessary. Those means frequently involve stealthy scheming, bunkhouse beat-downs, and, of course, murder most foul.

Needless to say, those are exactly the sort of elements that tend to make for must-see TV. While Yellowstone can’t quite make that lofty claim just yet, the show’s reputation for delivering salacious narratives with a cinematic feel has new viewers lining up by the week. If you’re eager to join their ranks, you’re probably wondering how you can watch Yellowstone from the very beginning.

Unfortunately, there’s only one easy way to stream the first two seasons of Yellowstone. As of December 2019, the series isn’t freely streaming on Netflix, Amazon, or Hulu. It is, however, available to watch on Paramount Network’s streaming app. If you’re already paying for an extended cable package, simply download the app and dive into Yellowstone from episode 1.

Season 1 of Yellowstone was the most-watched new cable series of 2018, and we have the details on how to watch Season 2, as well as what time it airs and what channel to tune in to. Yellowstone season 2 debuted on June 19, airing on both the Paramount Network and CMT. The show airs Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. on both networks as well. Cord-cutting fans can watch the series as well, with the Paramount Network website streaming all nine episodes of Season 1 for free. While the show is not currently on Netflix or Hulu, fans can download Season 2 episodes the day after they air for a price through services such as iTunes, Amazon, YouTube, Google Play, or Vudu.

Yellowstone was created by Taylor Sheridan (Sicario, Wind River), and tells the story of the Dutton family, who control the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States. “Business as usual” for the Dutton’s, however, includes unexplained murders, betrayal, and dark pasts.

The shows cast features Kevin Costner, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Luke Grimes, Danny Huston, Kelly Reilly, Kelsey Asbille, Brecken Merrill, Jefferson White, and Gil Birmingham.

In early 2018, Costner did an interview with the New York Times, and spoke about the series, as well as his familiarity with ranching prior to taking the role.

“It’s a time-honored thing, people making a living on horseback moving cattle. But in terms of how that trade is plied today, the world that Taylor was drawing was something very new to me,” Costner revealed. “It’s like going to see Cirque du Soleil versus the old circus. There’s still the clowns, the jugglers, the almost freakish things. It’s held onto its carnival roots. They just reinvented it.”

Regarding his character, family patriarch John Dutton, Costner had some thoughts on why he is compared to “an Old West land baron.”

“He’s a modern-day C.E.O., if you will, probably more than any of the generations before him,” Costner explained, “simply because he’s had to arbitrate so many problems with lawyers and encroachment and white-collar people coming after his land.”

“The urbanization and environmental protection that are threatening his ranch are much different than his predecessors, where they basically took the land and were stubborn enough, maybe vicious enough, to hold onto it,” he went on to say. “Characters that took up legendary status in the West were very capable of making really hard decisions that were probably questioned by people — but not for very long.”


There are only two episodes left in Yellowstone Season 2 before the season finale later this month.

Yellowstone, Paramount Network’s flagship drama series, is heading to Peacock. The forthcoming NBCUniversal streaming service will be the exclusive streaming home for the No. 1 summer drama in a licensing deal with ViacomCBS. It was announced at Comcast’s investor presentation today unveiling the service.

Yellowstone was the #1 scripted series of the summer across cable and broadcast TV in the key P18-49 and P25-54 demos and the most-watched 2019 summer series on cable TV among total viewers. It’s also the brand’s most-watched scripted series ever and Viacom’s most-watched scripted series since 2010.

Co-created by Taylor Sheridan and John Linson, Yellowstone follows the Dutton family, led by John Dutton (Oscar winner Kevin Costner), who controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States, under constant attack by those it borders – land developers, an Indian reservation, and America’s first National Park.

Peacock Investor Day: Deadline’s Complete Coverage

Cast also includes Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Brecken Merrill, Jefferson White, Forrie Smith, Denim Richards and Gil Birmingham.

Yellowstone is co-produced by 101 Studios. Executive producers are John Linson, Art Linson, Taylor Sheridan, Kevin Costner, David C. Glasser and Bob Yari.

Kevin Costner Blasts American Politics: ‘Shame on Us’

Kevin Costner is not happy with what’s happening — or not happening, that is — in Washington, D.C.

“The political landscape is unrecognizable to me, and shame on us for being in that spot,” the Oscar winner says. “That could change overnight, not because of a vote, but because people say, ‘I want to try to be more than about myself.’ That’s the definition of public service.”

Costner isn’t hopeful that change will come anytime soon.

“This is the greatest experiment in humankind: America,” he says. “This great idea about America still exists, it’s still here. People still want to come here, but we’re not first in hardly anything that matters and we have an inflated idea about how we are. We exaggerate about what we are. We are everything that’s great and we are everything that’s human. And our humanness and our level of selfishness is overtaking our chance to be great.”

Costner campaigned for Barack Obama in 2008. If he does have a pick for 2020, he’s not saying. When asked about the idea of Michelle Obama running for president, Costner says, “Michelle’s incredibly bright and articulate and has possessed good judgement and experience as a result. Why couldn’t she be ?”

If the former first lady did jump into the presidential ring, Costner says, “She’d have a level of interest from me.”

I sat down with Costner for “The Big Ticket” podcast the morning after his Netflix movie “The Highwaymen” premiered in March at South by Southwest. In the film, he plays Frank Hamer, the legendary Texas Ranger who led the hunt for and eventual fatal capture of Bonnie and Clyde. In Arthur Penn’s 1967 “Bonnie and Clyde,” Hamer is portrayed as an evil as well as ineffective lawman. In fact, Hamer’s widow and son received an out-of-court settlement when they sued the producers for defamation of character over the depiction.

Costner says “The Highwaymen” sets the record straight. “You always want to get it right when you’re dealing with a real person,” he said, adding, “When you’re dealing with real people you see the consequences…If that lawyer took down memory lane — ‘let me tell you who Frank Hamer is versus who you portrayed him to be’ — I’m sure that Penn was affected.”

Meanwhile, Costner revealed that he’s getting ready to direct again. He earned a best director as well as the best picture Oscar for his directorial debut “Dances With Wolves” in 1991. His other two directing outings include “The Postman” in 1997 and 2003’s “Open Range.”

But directing isn’t exactly a walk in the park for Costner. “I always think somebody else could do it better,” he explained. “But I’m gonna do it. I’m gonna try to play the second half of my career doing it. I’ve got a Western I want to do and about five other movies that are written.”

Listen to the full episode of “” below. The interview with Costner starts at about 33:00.


What to Watch on Wednesday: Kevin Costner is back at the ranch in season 2 of Yellowstone

We know TV has a lot to offer, be it network, cable, premium channels, or streaming platforms including Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, Apple, Facebook Watch, and elsewhere. So EW is here to help, guiding you every single day to the things that should be on your radar. Check out our recommendations below, and click here to learn how you can stream our picks via your own voice-controlled smart-speaker (Alexa, Google Home) or podcast app (Spotify, iTunes, Google Play).


HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 10 p.m. on Paramount Network

Season Premiere
Kayce Dutton wasn’t always so savage. In the season 1 finale of 2018’s most-watched new cable series, he proved he’d do “whatever it takes to protect the family,” star Luke Grimes explains, like killing a land developer who was a threat to their huge, eponymous ranch (owned by Kevin Costner’s John Dutton). But it was the show’s pilot, when Kayce killed his wife Monica’s brother, that “changed his entire course.” Season 2 finds him an emotional “wreck,” says Grimes. “He’s lost the love of his life and he’s trying to do whatever he can to protect the future for his son.” —Gerrad Hall

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

After five seasons playing Dre on ABC’s black-ish, Anthony Anderson had an “itch” to play a character “so far removed” from the affable patriarch, the actor tells EW. He scratches that itch in this movie, playing Romelo, a down-on-his-luck school security guard who moonlights as a music manager and producer, trying to reclaim his glory days in the music industry. He stumbles upon August (Khalil Everage), a shy, introverted, traumatized teenager with a knack for crafting fresh beats in his bedroom. Anderson says it’s a “great story to tell about this young man’s life, what’s going on in the inner city of Chicago, and how those two roads collided.” —Piya Sinha-Roy

Kevin Costner isn’t afraid to let the world know how he feels.

The Oscar winner is using his platform to speak out about how he isn’t happy with American politics. The star, 64, called the current political landscape “unrecognizable.”

“Shame on us for being in that spot,” Costner told Variety. “That could change overnight, not because of a vote, but because people say, ‘I want to try to be more than about myself.’ That’s the definition of public service.”


“The Bodyguard” actor also admitted he’s not sure if anything is changing soon.

“This is the greatest experiment in humankind: America,” he continued. “This great idea about America still exists, it’s still here. People still want to come here, but we’re not first in hardly anything that matters and we have an inflated idea about how we are.”

“We exaggerate about what we are. We are everything that’s great and we are everything that’s human. And our humanness and our level of selfishness is overtaking our chance to be great,” Costner said.


The director openly supported Barack Obama in 2008, but he’s not yet saying who he’s supporting in 2020, except if Michelle Obama were running.

“Michelle’s incredibly bright and articulate and has possessed good judgment and experience as a result. Why couldn’t she be ?” he mused. “She’d have a level of interest from me.”


Yellowstone is the hit series starring Kevin Costner that airs on the Paramount Network. Season 2 is premiering and a lot of fans are wondering if they can catch it on their favorite streaming service. Can you watch Yellowstone on Netflix or on Hulu?

Unfortunately, Yellowstone is not on Netflix. Not only are new episodes not on Netflix, but you can’t catch Season 1 of Yellowstone on Netflix either. So if Netflix is your favorite streaming service, you’ll need to find another option for Yellowstone.

If you want to catch Yellowstone on Hulu, this is unfortunately not an option for you either. Hulu has unrelated series to watch called Epic Yellowstone, Yellowstone Live, and America’s Yellowstone. But none of those series are related to Kevin Costner’s Yellowstone.

So without either Hulu or Netflix available for streaming Yellowstone, what other options do you have? Well, there’s still the option of watching on Amazon. All of Season 1 is available for purchase and streaming on Amazon, so if you need to catch up, that’s a great place to do it. Season 2 is also going to be available on Amazon, but it’s not clear exactly when. You can add the season to your watchlist, but you can’t prepurchase the season. If you choose to add Season 2 to your watch list, then you’ll be notified right away when it’s available on Amazon.

As for other streaming options, Heavy has a detailed story about that here. As a quick refresher, you can stream Yellowstone Season 2 as each new episode airs on Philo TV (they even have a 7-day free trial), FuboTV (they have a 7-day free trial too), or Sling TV (which also has a 7-day free trial available.) You can try one free trial a week to test which service you like best, if you want.

So as you can see, even though your favorite streaming services at Netflix and Hulu don’t have Yellowstone, there are still a lot of other ways to stream the TV series.

Yellowstone airs Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. Eastern (10 p.m. Pacific/9 p.m. Central) on the Paramount Network. The premiere also airs simultaneously on CMT. The premiere will be four minutes longer than normal, so be ready for an extra-long opening into the new season.
