New Channel -- The Scientology Network

I see the following new channels on U-Verse TV:

569 -- The Scientology Network

1569 -- The Scientology Network HD

It appears to be a U-300 or higher channel. I have U-200 and don't have it. Because it's a religious channel, U-Verse is probably being paid to air it.

Seems like it was still being pushed live, I was getting the error message that the channel wasn't included with my subscription but I restarted my receiver and its playing fine now. May be the same situation for you or maybe by now it will just play for you without restarting.

Hmm..

Since I don't care about the religious channels, it's gonna stay blocked.

Plus, I like pressing 1 5 5 5 and having that automatically go to ESPN.

As of 11/19 late AM, it was still blacked out on my U-200.

Yet I see it on 11/19 early afternoon.

But yeah...I auto-block all religious, unsubscribed, shopping and SD duplicate channels just to make my guide more easy to manage.

I don't consider Scientology to be a religion.  It's a cult.  I'm sorry.

That being said, it is being blocked as we speak.

Scientology is FAR from a religion.  It's a JOKE.  It's a RIP OFF.  It is a FOR PROFIT SCAM.  I PROTEST that it is on AT&T.  I want it OFF of my Channels.  I don't believe in supporting the crap that they pull.  I'm VERY disappointed with AT&T.

How do you block cults?

Press menu on the remote

Go down to options.

You should see the option to hide channels.

You can do that with as many channels as you wish.

When I get a new receiver, I make one pass with every channel I'm not subscribed to, plus religious and shopping channels.

I then do SD duplicates of channels I get in HD (say 602 because I can watch ESPN on 1602.)

The downside is that if there's a free preview (like the one now of every premium channel), then I have to unblock channels and then re-block after the preview ends...but it's a small price to pay.

If you lose power or move the receiver, the box remembers the settings.

Scientology is not a religion! It is just more worthless disinformation posing as science. I really don't understand why AT&T would even carry it on their TV service. It's been blocked on my TV along with all the other shopping and religious channels. Certainly seems like AT&T just keeps adding these crap channels and never adds anything good.
