Church of Scientology to launch TV network

Church of Scientology to launch TV network

The Scientology Network is set to debut tomorrow evening on DirecTV, as well as on connected-TV platforms such as Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire and Google Chromecast, according to promotional material from the church. It's unclear what the full slate is, but the official app promises "your favorite shows" like Meet a Scientologist, Voices for Humanity, L. Ron Hubbard: In His Own Voice and Scientology Principles films.

The Church of Scientology is about to start spreading its controversial message in a whole new way for the organization - through its own television channel.

DirecTV representative Steven Schwadron confirmed the DirecTV launch with USA Today. A network was initially said to be launching on Spectrum, but the cable company denied such plans. For example, it recently spent millions to run a Super Bowl commercial.

He says the people who should have unbridled anger are the Goldmans and the Browns, but Chris's outrage is right there. Simpson was acquitted of the murders in October 1995 but was later found liable in civil court.

Scientology expert Ortega has reported on his blog, The Underground Bunker, that church leader Miscavige held a top-secret meeting for Scientology leaders from all over the world recently, leading him to suspect the TV channel was imminent.

After months of speculation, the Church of Scientology has taken the wraps off its soon-to-launch, 24-hour TV network.

The move also comes after Alex Gibney's 2015 HBO doc Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief and A&E's doc series Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath.
