USA Today reported that the announcement was made on the organization’s official Twitter account. 

 “HELLO WORLD, and greetings from Scientology Media Productions in Hollywood, CA,” a Sunday tweet read. “It’s TIME for us to tell OUR story.”

“The only thing more interesting than what you heard is what you haven’t,” a teaser for the network says.

DirecTV representative Steven Schwadron confirmed the network’s availability to USAToday on Monday.

According to the Scientology Network, the channel is available on Apple TV, Fire TV, Roku, Chromecast, iTunes and Google Play. A promo for the network teases original series called “Inside Scientology,” “Meet a Scientologist” and one on the religion’s founder called “L. Ron Hubbard: In His Own Voice.”

Scientology has been the subject of multiple TV series and documentaries -- most notably actress and former member Leah Remini’s A&E series “Scientology and the Aftermath,” and the movie “Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief.” Both take critical views of the religion.
