MBC 1 is a free-to-air pan-Arab general television channel. Satellite transmission started from London in September 1991, making MBC (Middle East Center) the first independent Arabic satellite TV station, with an estimated audience of more than 130 million Arab people around the world. MBC has recently moved its headquarters to Dubai Media City, bringing the production process closer to its Arab viewers.

MBC1 previously used to air cartoons, western movies and programs before launching MBC 2, MBC 3, and MBC 4.One of its most popular, widely known and controversial shows, and the one generating the highest advertising rates, is Kalam Nawaem, a show led by several women that addresses many types of (women’s) issues and taboos, including terrorism, domestic violence, polygamy, divorce and women’s suffrage.

MBC1 HD launched on 1 July 2011.

From 24 March to 22 June 2020, following the COVID-19 pandemic, MBC 1 used a logo with a house displayed on-screen.

MBC 1 rebranded in 2012 to bring a new set of idents, idents are now 9 seconds long, unlike 2009’s rebrand, which had 20 seconds long idents. In this rebrand, there are menus and bumpers (idents), the menus are used for next tags, which have continuity announcers, bumpers are used to “split” between breaks and programmes, and are used at the end of any programme. Focusing on a “cube-ish” theme, the channel has a simple look, but rather stylish.
