Al Arabiya News Channel was launched in 2003 as a 24/7 free-to-air news and current affairs satellite outlet. Al Arabiya quickly became the preferred news source for Arabs seeking credible information about the Middle East and the world. To further expand its reach, Al Arabiya maintains an extensive global network of correspondents and reporters, ensuring that its audiences receive the latest updates, scoops, interviews, and exclusives. In keeping up with the digital era, Al Arabiya has established a Digital Department within its network. This department is responsible for producing news, programs, and documentaries tailored for streaming on various social media platforms.
