The VPRO (originally an acronym for Vrijzinnig Protestantse Radio Omroep, or "Liberal Protestant Radio Broadcasting Corporation") was established in the Netherlands in 1926 as a religious broadcasting organization. Falling under the Protestant pillar, it represented the Liberal Protestant current. However, in the 1950s and 1960s it became more (social) liberal than protestant, and while the acronym VPRO was kept, its meaning was dropped. It was the first to show a nude woman on Dutch television, Phil Bloom in 1967. It is still considered the most "culturally radical" group on Dutch television.

VPRO often collaborates with other broadcasting organisations such as WDR, the BBC, and Arte.
Like all Dutch public broadcasters, the VPRO does not have its own dedicated channel.
The VPRO started, in late 1996, developing MMBase - a Java based open source web content management system. The first version of the system was in use in 1997. It was released as open source on April 3, 2000.
