The Design Network focuses on “fashion and function of home,” with viewers getting home tours, insight on the latest trends, and programming featuring interior experts. Shows on the channel include Design in the Details and Tiny BNB. It’s on 4365.

Alien Nation will cater to anyone interested in aliens and paranormal activities. From Phenomenon: The Lost Archives and Evil EncountersBigfoot Beyond the Trail, and Sasquatch Unearthed: The Ridge are among the shows you’ll catch on the network. It’s on 4490.

This comes after it had previously added channels like Cheddar, Fox Nation, Sportsgrid, and Tastemade.
