Regional Broadcast Partner


In 2003, Al Arabiya news channel was launched. The 24/7 free-to-air news and current affairs satellite outlet soon became the news source of choice for Arabs seeking credible news and information about the Middle East and the world beyond. Al Arabiya’s reputation for sober and balance reporting now extends beyond its natural geographic and cultural domain, i.e. the Middle East.

A number of renowned international news organisations and research institutes interested in the Arab and Islamic worlds regularly monitor Al Arabiya. Al Arabiya runs an extensive global network of correspondents and reporters to provide its audiences with the latest updates, scoops, interviews, and exclusives.

With nearly 30 offices around the world and large-scale presence in several key countries such as Iraq, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, and Yemen, Al Arabiya enjoys a competitive edge in providing on-the-ground, first hand coverage of major events of relevance to its audience and the world at large.

Al Arabiya’s charter embodies an independent editorial policy based on providing its viewers with a speedy news service and balanced analysis that is thoughtfully accurate, comprehensive and objective.
