Al Arabiya (Arabic: العربية‎ al-ʿArabiyyah) is an Arabic-language television news channel. It was established on March 3, 2003.

The international news station is based in Dubai Media City, United Arab Emirates, and is partly owned by the Saudi-controlled broadcaster Middle East Broadcasting Center (MBC).

Al Arabiya broadcasts 24 hours a day with news updated at the top of the hour. The free-to-air channel carries news, current affairs, business and financial markets, sports, talk shows, and documentaries. It is consistently rated among the top pan-Arab stations by Middle East audiences. Al Arabiya says it tries to use neutral, non-supportive language when covering Islamic militant groups. On January 26, 2009 President of the United States Barack Obama gave his first formal interview as president to the television channel. The White House contacted Al Arabiya's Washington Bureau chief, Hisham Melhem, directly just hours before the interview and asked him not to announce it until an official announcement was made by the administration.
