* '''AVROTROS''', a merger of AVRO and TROS. Primarily involved in entertainment programming, especially game and reality shows. AVRO was the very first broadcaster in the system, with a liberal ideology. TROS was an abnormality when it joined in 1964, as it was dedicated solely to entertainment rather than serving a religion or an ideology. Its popularity led some of the other groups to similarly broaden their programming for wider appeal.
* BNN-VARA, a merger of BNN (Bart's Neverending Network, founded by Bart de Graaff as the Brutaal News Network, but re-named following his death in 2002. Is primarily involved in pop culture and being a RefugeInAudacity) and VARA (which has historically been aligned with the Labour Party). The VARA half is best known for ''De Wereld Draait Door'', which is one of the top television programmes in the country. BNN was best known for the Dutch version of ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway'', ''De Lama's'', and controversial programmes such as their bucket list show ''Try Before You Die'' (which had an episode with one of their hosts streaking at a Winbledon match), and their 2007 stunt ''De Grote Donorshow'', where viewers were asked to help decide who a terminally ill woman should donate her kidneys to. It wound up being a hoax to spread awareness about the lack of organ donors in the country, happening five years after the death of de Graaff (who had received a donated kidney).
* Evangelische Omroep (EO), an evangelical broadcaster serving the Protestant Christian faith.
* KRO-NCRV, a merger of a Catholic-run organization with a Christian-run organization.
* Max, which mainly serves viewers over 50
* VPRO, which is dedicated to cultural and intellectual programming, and primarily known for its documentaries and films.
* Wakker Nederland (WNL), a conservative, right-leaning broadcaster.

There are two public service broadcasters in the system; NOS (which handles news and sports), and NTR (which handles "informational, cultural and educational programs"). There are also other religious and philosophical groups, designated as "special" broadcasters, who receive airtime for their shows. Some of them have merged with or partnered with the larger groups.

The NPO also runs six digital networks;
* NPO 101, a youth channel curated by BNN-VARA
* NPO Cultura, an arts channel
* NPO Zapp Xtra, a children's channel
* NPO Best, a classic TV channel curated by KRO-NCRV, time-sharing with NPO Zapp Xtra
* NPO Nieuws, a news channel
* NPO Politiek, a political affairs channel. During the summer months, it changes to NPO Sport
