Free streaming TV service Pluto TV has added two new BBC-branded channels to its lineup.

BBC Food bills itself as a destination where viewers can “step into the kitchen with some of the finest chefs in the British Isles” and carries culinary and kitchen programs hosted by Jamie Oliver, Rachel Allen, Nigella Lawson and others.

BBC Home is a new lifestyle channel that offers remodeling, gardening and decoration-themed programs around-the-clock.

Both channels are available under the “Home + DIY” section on Pluto TV, with BBC Food listed on channel 609 and BBC Home just one below on channel 610.

Owned by ViacomCBS, Pluto TV offers more than 250 linear streams of TV shows and movies along with a robust on-demand catalog of hundreds of titles.

In addition to the BBC channels, Pluto TV offers general entertainment programs on dozens of ViacomCBS-branded channels, including Showtime Selects (Channel 127), TV Land Drama (Channel 13) and Comedy Central Animation (Channel 467). Pluto TV also carries live news and political opinion programming from NBC News Now, CBSN, Sky News and Newsmax.

Pluto TV is available as a free download for iOS, Android, Amazon Fire TV and Roku devices and is available on most smart TVs, game consoles and Comcast’s X1 platform.
