Church of Scientology to launch its own TV channel today

The Church of Scientology announced Sunday that its television network will debut Monday at 8 p.m. ET, with programing coming from Scientology Media Productions in Hollywood.

The controversial group, headed by David Miscavige, is poised to launch a channel on DirectTV and platforms Apple TV and Roku on Monday, March 12.

On the network's recently launched Twitter account, the church teased the network's impending arrival in a series of tweets, including one featuring a preview of some of the network's programming. A DirecTV spokesperson confirmed the new network will be available on the satellite provider's channel 320, which now features infomercials.

The Church of Scientology, headed by David Miscavige, has always been rumored to be working on its own network.

Apparently, the organization ratcheted up its media presence in recent years, making an announcement of its own production studio Scientology Media Productions in 2016.

Ron Hubbard set against cheerful B-roll-promises, "The only thing more interesting than what you've heard.is what you haven't".

Scientology TV comes at a time where the controversial church has seen a spate of high-profile projects attempting to discredit it with accusations of abuses from former members and their family members.
