Church of Scientology Is Set to Release Their Own TV Network


According to the app description in the Google Play store, the network will feature original series such as Meet a Scientologist, Voices for Humanity and L. Ron Hubbard: In His Own Voice.

Headquartered in Hollywood, Scientology Media Productions launched in May 2016 to serve as, in the words of Scientology leader David Miscavige, "our uncorrupted communication line to the billions".

It is also accused of much worse practices - including coerced abortions and turning people against psychiatry - and of silencing dissent with harassment and lawsuits, and has been the subject of many documentaries, investigations and exposes.

The church promoted the Scientology TV network's debut during the Super Bowl, drawing complaints; a sexual abuse scandal involving the organization continues to unfold.

Scientology has been a TV fascination for years, with programs like HBO's Going Clear and Leah Remini's Scientology and the Aftermath on A&E-neither of which exactly painted the religion in a flattering light-generating buzz and ratings for their respective networks. Most estimates peg Scientology at around 20,000 to 50,000 members globally, with the majority of those in the United States.

Would U watch the Scientology TV network???

In the past, The Church of Scientology has been in the spotlight for issues related to the mistreatment of its members.

The announcement came with the tagline "a new voice, a new network".

The Scientology Network is due to start broadcasting on Roku, AppleTV, FireTV and the Apple and Android app stores at 8pm Eastern time (or midnight for United Kingdom viewers).

Thus far, the app only references live streaming and full episodes of all your favorite shows.
