Quest Arabiya (Arabic: عربية Quest), a partnership between Abu Dhabi's Image Nation and Discovery Communications, is a free-to-air, pan-Arab channel launched on December 7, 2015 across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). It is the region's localised version of the Quest channel.

Focusing primarily on factual and reality based programming, Quest Arabiya broadcasts 24 hours a day, expected to reach an estimated 45 million households across 22 countries. The channel will have a broad appeal to a wide demographic of Arabic-speaking males and females while specifically targeting males 16+ at key times in the schedule.

Content from Discovery’s extensive library of internationally acclaimed factual entertainment shows have been dubbed to Arabic to ensure the channel appeals to as wide an audience as possible. Alongside this, Quest Arabiya will broadcast regionally produced, world-class original material focusing on stories relevant to the region.

Quest Arabiya aims to become the go-to platform for showcasing talent from across the region. The channel is committed to creating regionally produced original programming, fronted by regional talent. It will cover the following genres from launch: Extreme Outdoor, Turbo, Engineering, Nature & Wildlife, Science & Space and People & Places. There will also be programming focusing on crime and illusions.
