Celebrate World Television Day With a Visit to the Scientology Network
Curious about Scientology? Visit the Scientology Network, available in 17 languages, and learn the truth about the world’s youngest major religion.
In honor of World Television Day November 21, with the UN noting the increasing impact of the medium on the lives of people everywhere, the Church of Scientology welcomes viewers to satisfy their curiosity about Scientology—the world's youngest major religion.
Every six seconds someone searches the question “What is Scientology?” And the Scientology Network answers this question by taking viewers behind the scenes to Scientology Churches on six continents, Church management, its publication and dissemination facilities, and humanitarian outreach centers and programs.
The network launched in March 2018 with a special introduction by Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige.
“You’ve probably heard of Scientology,” said Mr. Miscavige from the atrium of the Church of Scientology spiritual headquarters in Florida. “There’s a lot of talk about us. And we get it. People are curious. Well, we want to answer your questions, because, frankly, whatever you’ve heard, if you haven’t heard it from us, I can assure you, we are not what you expect.
“So, while I could tell you Scientology is new, our approach is new, our answers are new, and that Scientology is not just something you believe in, it’s something you do, well, I’m sure you would much rather see for yourself. And that’s what the Scientology Network is all about. To show you inside Scientology, who we are, what Scientology is, and what Scientology can do.”
The Network debuted, airing 24/7 on DIRECTV channel 320, with an array of original series, also available at Scientology.tv, and streaming through mobile apps and via the Roku, Amazon Fire and Apple TV platforms:
