With the premiere episodes of season 5 smashing viewer records, there’s no doubt this will be Yellowstone’s biggest season yet.

With there being so many places to watch Yellowstone, many fans have been confused as to where to watch it and when the next episode is coming out.

Perhaps the most popular way to watch Yellowstone season 5 without cable has been by purchasing it on Amazon Prime Video.

Although buyers will own and be able to watch episodes on demand when they like, they won’t be able to watch new episodes live, but only after it’s aired on the Paramount Network channel.

However, some who have ordered Yellowstone season 5 on Amazon Prime Video are reporting that the new episodes aren’t available straight away after it’s aired live on the Paramount Network Channel.

Why Isn’t Yellowstone Season 5 Available to Watch Yet on Amazon Prime Video?

Yellowstone season 5 won’t be available to watch on Amazon Prime Video until after the show has aired live on TV. Typically an episode is released within 24 hours, though this isn’t always the case, and hasn’t been for many who purchased Yellowstone season 5 on Amazon Prime Video.

Update: Upon contacting Amazon support, they could not give us an exact time on when the next episode of Yellowstone season 5 will be released. We have had hundreds of messages about this, so it’s certainly not an isolated incident.

Amazon customer support center also says this about purchasing season passes, “Any episodes of the show that have already been broadcast are immediately available to watch from Your Video Library. As new episodes air, they will automatically be made available in Your Video Library, usually within 24 hours of broadcast.”

Please let us know in the comment below if you found this information useful or if it’s still not been released for you.

While you wait, here is the official episode 3 preview:

What’s going on with Yellowstone, Amazon Prime? Fix it already! It’s Tuesday Dec 6th, and I still cannot view the latest show that was shown on Dec 4th! You took my money, so fix the problem, or I’m disputing the $40. I paid to you!

I am already an Amazon prime member. Have been for years. Why do I have to pay for it to watch on Amazon prime now? Don't I pay enough money for Amazon prime already?!

I purchased the entire Season 5 of Yellowstone on Amazon Prime Video and was told by the Amazon rep it would be aired at 10 pm on Sunday evening with each new episode. It is now 10:18 pm and no Episode 4???? I called and spoke to two representatives and supervisor at Amazon and they are completely clueless and unhelpful and do not know when it will be aired?

Why buy something you do not get!
