A selection of Arabic-language feature films and language-learning aids can be checked out from the UIUC Undergraduate Library. Several dozen additional Arabic-language movies and children's books are available at our local public libraries (Champaign's and Urbana's) -- search for "arabic language materials" in their shared online catalog.
Just across the sidewalk to the north of the Main Library, the Communications Library in Gregory Hall has a new international News Lounge where Library patrons can tune in to live TV broadcasts from around the world. While one screen is always dedicated to Arabic-language programming, patrons can ask for specific channels (Al-Jazeera, Al-Jazeera Sports, BBC Arabic, etc.) to be turned on at any time. Audio is available through earphones via any FM-enabled device (I-Pod, cell phone, etc.). It is also possible to do video/audio recording of portions of broadcasts directly to a flash drive.
