Scientology church to launch TV Network

Promotions from the church say that it will start rolling out content on Apple TV Roku and DirecTV on March 12

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

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.

According to Deadline, promotional information from the controversial church indicates the new network will be available on US cable provider DirectTV, and will also be accessible via Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire and Google Chromecast, in addition to a free app that can be downloaded.

According to a promo video, the new network will occupy the satellite service's channel 320, which now airs infomercials. A Sunday post about the looming launch made mention of a Miami billboard plugging the network. 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.

Six Nations: Johnny Sexton has grand-slam shot at last
A St Patrick's Day showdown against England awaits and as well as the lure of entering the pantheon of greats, there are financial rewards at play for a group of players who have now gone 11 games unbeaten - a run that started when they denied England the Grand Slam in Dublin a year ago.

It's not immediately clear what the network will entail, or who from the church's deep bench of famous members may be enlisted for the programming, but the app references live streaming and "full episodes of your favorite shows".

One element that has always been a crucial promotional element for Scientology that is absent thus far from the materials touting the new network is any connection with Hollywood.

Scientology has been the subject of a handful of high-profile projects investigating its alleged abuses of former members.
