The channel, a partnership between Image Nation Abu Dhabi and Discovery Communications, fills a gap in the Arabic TV market by providing factual entertainment content of a quality and breadth that has never been seen before in the region.
Mohamed Al-Mubarak, Chairman of Image Nation Abu Dhabi, said, “There is a great need for more Arabic content across TV and digital, and by launching a factual entertainment channel we are filling a gap in the market.
“Quest Arabiya showcases fascinating stories from all over our region highlighting positive achievements that have never been seen before on TV. Image Nation has a proven track record in creating first-class filmed media content and our knowledge and expertise in regional production along with Discovery’s international expertise will ensure the highest standards of programming.”
At the launch event, Khalid Khouri, Deputy General Manager of Quest Arabiya, and Shereen El Meligi, Programming Director, outlined the channel’s core content. Quest Arabiya focuses on six key genres: Extreme Outdoor, Turbo, Engineering, Nature & Wildlife, Science & Space and People & Places.
Other content areas include themed weekends, such as Big Cats and Shark Weekend. The first Saturday of each month will feature ‘Saturday Night Specials’, during which documentaries of regional interest will be screened.
