Abu Dhabi TV ( _ar. تلفزيون أبو ظبي) is an Arabic television station re-launched in 2000, broadcasting from Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates. Although it is a generic channel and not a 24-hour news network, Abu Dhabi TV is famous for its footage of the 2003 Iraq War. It competes with the two other 24-hour news stations, Al Jazeera and Al-Arabiya in the Arab world.

Abu Dhabi TV is managed by the United Arab Emirates' largest media group, Abu Dhabi Media Company [http://www.emi.ae] ] . ADMC, the largest and most diversified media corporation in the Arab world, enjoys editorial and administrative independence while somewhat dependent on government and federal funding through its previous attachment to the Ministry of Information and Culture since 1999 and current attachment to Abu Dhabi Media Company in which the ministry was scrapped in Feb. 2006. EMI operations currently include 3 satellite television channels, 7 radio channels and 3 press publications.

Abu Dhabi TV presents news bulletins every three hours. It produces nearly 60% of the programs that it broadcasts, including political, current affairs, cultural, entertainment, drama, and documentary features. Abu Dhabi TV is broadcast throughout the Middle East, North America, Europe, South America, and Australia.

The network is known throughout the Middle East for the popular show of Million's Poet.
