Add a new remote, fetch, and check out a branch from it:

              $ git remote
              origin
              $ git branch -r
                origin/HEAD -> origin/master
                origin/master
              $ git remote add staging git://git.kernel.org/.../gregkh/staging.git
              $ git remote
              origin
              staging
              $ git fetch staging
              ...
              From git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/staging
               * [new branch]      master     -> staging/master
               * [new branch]      staging-linus -> staging/staging-linus
               * [new branch]      staging-next -> staging/staging-next
              $ git branch -r
                origin/HEAD -> origin/master
                origin/master
                staging/master
                staging/staging-linus
                staging/staging-next
