Quest Arabiya (Arabic: عربية Quest) was a free-to-air pan-Arab television channel. The channel was launched on 7 December 2015 across the Middle East and North Africa region. It was the region's localized version of the Quest UK channel. The channel was owned by Discovery Communications in partnership with the Abu Dhabi-based Image Nation.

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

Content from Discovery's library of factual entertainment shows have been voice-over translated into Arabic. Soon afterward, an English track was launched, allowing viewers to watch the programs in their original language without voice-over translation into Arabic.

On 24 April 2019, the channel announced on their Facebook page that the channel will cease broadcasting on 1 May 2019 without giving a reason.

The channel ceased operations on 1 May 2019.
