Humanistische Omroep (abbr. HUMAN, earlier HOS: English: Humanist Broadcaster) is a special broadcaster on the Netherlands Public Broadcasting system, which is allowed to broadcast on radio and television because of their spiritual background. Article 2.42 of the Dutch media law (the Mediawet) makes room for faith-based radio and television broadcasters who do not have to have any members, unlike regular public broadcasters (several of which are also faith-based). However, HUMAN has been attempting to obtain a regular public broadcasting license, and attained the minimum amount of members to be eligible to become an aspirant broadcaster as of 2014.[1]

The broadcaster is known for broadcasting from a humanist perspective and has broadcast since 1989. Since 2001 HUMAN is part of the Humanistische Alliantie (Humanist Alliance).
