While “Yellowstone” season five, part two isn’t expected to drop on the Paramount Network on cable until Nov. 2024, its past seasons are finding new life with a wider audience on broadcast TV as reruns.

After a holiday break, “Yellowstone” is back with season three beginning on Sunday, Jan. 14. CBS will air three back-to-back episodes starting at 8 p.m. ET.

The best way to stream online is with DirecTV Stream. Right now, the streamer is offering a 5-day free trial, so you can watch season three for free.

However, if you want to watch CBS without cable and without the internet, you can tune-in for free with an indoor TV antenna. CBS is also available to stream with Fubo and Hulu + Live TV.

Here’s the season three three-episode schedule on CBS: The season three premiere episode “You’re the Indian Now” airs at 8 p.m. ET, which is followed by “Freight Trains and Monsters” at 9 p.m. ET and then “An Acceptable Surrender” at 10 p.m. ET.

Although “Yellowstone” has been on cable since 2018, the contemporary western has found a new audience on broadcast TV. Back in Sept. 2023, Paramount Global started to air “Yellowstone” on CBS every Sunday starting with season one. It brought in high ratings averaging 5.49 million viewers per episode, while 6.6 million viewers tuned in for the series premiere. In addition, it’s expected that “Yellowstone’s” audience is just going to grow more and more on broadcast TV — namely because it’s still more accessible than cable and streaming.

“Yellowstone” season three will air on Sunday, Jan. 14 starting at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. The best way to watch online without cable is with DirecTV Stream, which is currently offering a 5-day free trial. But, you can also watch for free with an indoor TV antenna — we rounded up the best ones here.
