Nuvyyo has added more than 20 new streaming channels to its next-generation Tablo over-the-air digital video recorder, the company announced on Wednesday.

Most of the new streams originate from AMC Networks, which operate a handful of free, ad-supported streaming television channels. Some of the streams were promoted as being available on the fourth-generation Tablo models when the device first became available in October, but are being offered to users of the device for the first time.

Streamers with a fourth-generation Tablo DVR will have to perform a channel rescan in order to receive the new streaming channels, the company said on Wednesday. To do this, streamers will need to open the Tablo app, navigate to Settings, select “Guide Options,” then “Channel Lineup” and choose “Rescan Channels.”

The new channels available on the fourth-generation Tablo DVR are:

  • ALLBLK Gems
  • All Reality WE TV
  • All Weddings WE V
  • Almost Friday
  • AMC en Español
  • AMC Thrillers
  • Anime x HiDive
  • Bike
  • Christmas Plus
  • Entrepreneur TV
  • Free Movies
  • IFC Film Picks
  • MSG SportsZone
  • Overtime
  • Portlandia
  • Power
  • Skateboarding
  • Slightly Off IFC
  • Snowboarder
  • Stories by AMC
  • Surfer
  • The Walking Dead Universe
  • TIME FAST

The fourth-generation Tablo DVR pairs over-the-air broadcast signals receivable through a conventional TV antenna with free, ad-supported streaming channels that exist within a single electronic program guide. The device costs $100 for a two-tuner model or $140 for a four-tuner model (the latter sold exclusively at Best Buy).

Both models of the fourth-generation Tablo DVR have 128 Gigabytes (GBs) of on-board flash storage, with the option to expand the storage further with an external hard drive connected via a USB port on the back. Unlike prior Tablo DVR models, there are no subscription fees with the fourth-generation Tablo DVR.
