Church of Scientology Announces New TV Network

Church of Scientology Announces New TV Network

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.

The network will be available on AppleTV, Roku, Amazon Fire and Google Chromecast, with an app for the network already available for download on the App Store.

The thought of a Scientology TV network has been in the works for some time now; the network was rumored about a year ago at first, and really seemed inevitable after the church launched its own studio with Scientology Media Productions.

The website scientology.tv says the Scientology Network will debut at 8 p.m. ET on Monday, according to the reports. Request for comment from the Church of Scientology was not immediately returned, but a DirecTV spokesperson confirmed the Monday launch.

The church, led by David Miscavige, has long had lofty ambitions to reach more people.

However, it has not been made clear as to what kind of programming the network will feature.

While Cruise has remained Scientology's highest profile member, Leah Remini famously left the Church and did the documentary expose series Scientology and the Aftermath on the A & E Channel to reveal alleged misdeeds.

While a significant investment for the group, this is not the first time Scientology has used TV as a recruitment tool.
