NPO is the umbrella administrative body of several independent dutch broadcasters with a broadcasting license. These broadcasters can be divided into two categories:
- Broadcasters with statutory functions in terms of news, sports, education and culture (NOS and NTR).
- Broadcasting associations that either represent a social or religious movement or represent a specific target group, such as young people or the elderly. These broadcasting associations are firmly rooted in Dutch society through their members and are partly the result of the segregated Dutch society which emerged in the first half of the last century. The existence of these member-based broadcasting associations makes the Dutch public broadcasting system unique in the world.
