Scientology TV is now installed at the Ideal Orgs — when do the rest of us get to see it?

[Scientology TV has a logo!]

For weeks, Scientologists have been told that this year’s L. Ron Hubbard birthday event will mark a huge new leap forward for the church, which we believe is a reference to the highly anticipated premiere of the church’s own television cable station. (LRH was born on March 13, 1911, but this year’s event will happen live in Clearwater on Saturday, March 17 10, and then broadcast at the other orgs a week later.)

Now, we have even more visual proof of the big birthday surprise. Yesterday, one of our eagle-eyed tipsters noticed that Ideal Orgs around the country have begun putting out photographs of newly installed TV monitors showing the Scientology logo, and saying that something big is coming.

Here’s one example, from the Pasadena Ideal Org…



Similar photos were posted by orgs in Sacramento, San Francisco, and Tampa.

They can hardly contain their excitement…


David Miscavige has been preparing for the launch of the channel for quite a while. Millions were spent to open a new set of TV studios in Hollywood, which was opened in May 2016. Since then, Miscavige has made repeated references to the channel coming at major events.

We even found evidence that a channel was about to launch last year on Spectrum, the country’s second-largest cable system, formerly known as Time Warner Cable. But after our story appeared, Spectrum removed most of the pages about “SCNTV” (but not all of them), and so we’re not sure where Scientology’s new channel is going to launch.

But it sure looks like the premiere is imminent.
