The church announced on its official Twitter account that the Scientology Network will debut Monday.

According to a description in the iTunes store, the Scientology Network’s app will allow users to watch the original series Meet A Scientologist and Voices for Humanity. A program titled L. Ron Hubbard: In His Own Voice and Scientology Principles films will also be available, iTunes says.

In A&E’s series Scientology and the Aftermath, Remini, a member of the church until 2013, speaks with other former Scientologists who make several disparaging claims about the church, including that it turns a blind eye to sexual abuse.

The church previously denied the program’s claims to USA TODAY, explaining, “Nothing about A&E’s Leah Remini ‘docuseries’ is honest. The singular goal of the program is to make money and boost ratings by spreading salacious lies to promote A&E’s ugly brand of religious intolerance, bigotry and hatred.”

The religion has also been the subject of the films My Scientology Movie and Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief.

The Church of Scientology did not immediately return USA TODAY’s request for comment about the new network.
