Chairman's message

For over three decades, MBC GROUP has been a trailblazer in the broadcast and media industry, establishing itself as a true leader in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and beyond. Our commitment to enriching lives through information, interaction, and entertainment has propelled us to achieve extraordinary feats throughout our journey.
And what a journey it has been so far!

Together, we have made quantum leaps over the years… We have transformed from a small company operating a single private satellite TV channel from London in 1991, to a truly global multi-platform media organisation that is headquartered in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and runs throughout MENA and the rest of the world.

As a leading media organisation, we take immense pride in our ability and dedication to create and deliver unparalleled content, brands, and experiences that surpass expectations. Our outstanding team works faithfully to bring you the very best in cutting-edge technology, captivating, and thought-provoking productions, as well as ground-breaking viewing experiences.
Through our unwavering commitment to quality, we have gained the trust and loyalty of audiences around the world. Our strong presence – not only in our region but also beyond its borders – solidifies our reputation as a trusted and respected brand.

The record success of MBC GROUP – and the solid foundation on which our past, present, and future is built – is down to three pillars: our loyal viewers, our partners, and of course, the exceptional performance by each and every member of the MBC GROUP family. We would have not been able to transform our continuous ambitious visions into reality without the endless support from our viewers, subscribers, advertisers, talented team members and more.
Looking ahead, MBC GROUP continues to grow with these three pillars at the forefront of every decision made. We continue to strive to push boundaries, embrace new technologies, and stay ahead of the ever-evolving new media landscape. Our goal is to continue shaping the future of broadcasting, providing our audiences with the latest trends and captivating programming.
We are immensely proud of what we have accomplished so far.

On behalf of the entire MBC GROUP board of directors, I extend my heartfelt gratitude to our teams around the world, our valued partners, and most importantly, our loyal audience.
Without your support and loyalty, none of our achievements would be possible.
