Scientology officials from around the globe called to Florida for news of ‘Scientology TV’

[Almost two years after opening his new studios, is Miscavige about to launch Scientology TV?]

Is it really finally happening?

Last March, we told you that evidence had turned up of “SCNTV,” a cable channel all about Scientology that was being prepared on Spectrum, the country’s second-largest cable system (and formerly known as Time Warner Cable).

Pages at the Spectrum website showed that “SCNTV” was being prepared, as well as a number of Scientology-produced videos. And this was consistent with what Scientology leader David Miscavige was telling his followers at major events, that a Scientology TV channel would debut by the summer of 2017, and that it would be on a major cable system that matched the description of Spectrum.

The promised cable station was supposed to be the culmination of “Scientology Media Productions,” the studio complex the church purchased from television station KCET in Los Angeles in 2011 and opened with much fanfare in May 2016.

But summer 2017 came and went, Spectrum dropped most of the SCNTV placeholder pages (but not all of them), and the plans for a TV station seemed to be put off indefinitely.


Now, however, there are signs again that the launch of the new station is imminent — at least, that’s what Scientologists are being told, and at considerable expense. Take a look at what a Seattle Scientology Facebook page posted this week…


Just imagine the expense to fly out representatives from every org on the planet in order to tell them, “the TV channel is really, truly coming.” They couldn’t do that in an email?

Anyway, we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for the new station. Is it still going to show up on Spectrum, or some other system? If you spot something, let us know.
