Scientology Network set for TV launch

Share

According to a description in the iTunes store, the Scientology Network's service will launch with the original series "Meet A Scientologist", "Voices for Humanity", "L. Ron Hubbard: In His Own Voice", and Scientology Principles films.

But the church is often the center of controversy as well, with several former Scientology church members having attempted to discredit the organization.

The move ends months of speculation after the organisation set up its own studio with Scientology Media Productions.

The 30-year-old played well for the Raiders down the stretch last season, after a year and a half of disappointing production. Smith was arrested last August 17 for allegedly assaulting his sister's then-boyfriend, Christopher Woods, last July 4.

Founded in 1954 by American science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology has grown into a religious movement with outposts around the world and some very famous members.

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

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.

Kentucky's annual unemployment rate at lowest level since 2000
Employment in educational services was unchanged at 28,700 jobs in 2017, and declined by 3,000 jobs over the last 10 years. Although total employment increased, the number of people actively participating in the labor force increased by more.

However, it has not been made clear as to what kind of programming the network will feature. The church operates 104 outposts in the U.S. across 31 states and Puerto Rico.

Some advertisers, notes Deadline, may not want to associate themselves with the Church of Scientology. The latest evidence of this: a 24-hour Scientology network.

The announcement came with the tagline "a new voice, a new network". Over many decades, a range of high-profile actors, musicians and others in Hollywood have at times openly plugged their adherence to Scientology, which is used in turn as a recruitment tool. As well as the streaming options there is an app where the channel can be watched live.
