Church of Scientology to launch its own TV channel today

The Scientology Cross is perched atop the Church of Scientology in Los Angeles on Thursday Aug. 25 2016

LOS ANGELES — The Church of Scientology is about to get its own television channel starting Monday.

Running the app reveals a placeholder announcement that content will officially launch at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. P.T. on Monday; and a Twitter account looks also ready to go.

According to a description in the iTunes store, the Scientology Network's app will allow users to watch the original series Meet A Scientologist and Voices for Humanity.

A promotional video hints that the network will take over DirectTV's channel 320, which broadcasts infomercials.

The likelihood of some Scientology outlet seemed like an inevitability in 2016 when the church announced the launch of its own studio with Scientology Media Productions.

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

This is not the first time the church has used TV as a tool to reach a wider audience. The church annually drops millions on a 30-second commercial during the Super Bowl, something it ran for the sixth consecutive year in February.

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

The church previously denied the program's claims to USA TODAY, explaining, "Nothing about A&E's Leah Remini "docuseries" is honest".
