  1. yesterday I got the paramount network ap and successfully streamed Yellowstone.

    But today, after I pressed the paramount network icon, I only got a screen with this text:
    “Access to this program is not included in your Spectrum subscription”

    I could not get pass this screen which I also got after pressing the paramount+ app.

    I have been screening PBS and CBSN for some time without without a Spectrum subscription.
    Why was I able to screen Yellow Stone yesterday without this requirement ?
