ScientologyTV has been hyped literally for years now and seems finally ready to launch. According to a speech by Scientology's dwarf-in-chief David Miscavige, the Scientology TV app is now downloadable for Android and Apple products. Tomorrow night, programming is set to begin streaming on the app as well as on the network's home at DirecTV at 8 pm Eastern Time. L. Ron Hubbard Way in Los Angeles, home to one of the largest Scientology Celebrity Centers, has been blocked off at the southern end. When the network goes live Monday night, this will purportedly be the hub of the celebratory festivities. A billboard spotted in Miami advertised that Scientology's programming will appear on DirecTV channel 320.
At the moment, 320 is merely showing infomercials, none of which seem related to Scientology (or even any of its many fronts). Scientology watchdog Tony Ortega sent an email to AT&T media relations asking if the channel would indeed become home to Scientology programming. No response as of yet, according to TonyOrtega.com. The app is currently showing a countdown to Monday night and pointing towards the Scientology TV twitter feed.
