Dictionary of Dutchness


The Publieke Omroep or public broadcasting system is funded by the state and advertising. Public broadcasting companies (including AVRO, BNN, EO, KRO, NCRV, TROS, VARA and VPRO) provide programmes for three television and five radio stations as well as digital channels. They have a specific religious, political or social slant and their airtime is allocated according to how many members they have.
