Hokkaido Cultural Broadcasting Co., Ltd. (北海道文化放送株式会社, Hokkaidō Bunka Hōsō Kabushikigaisha, UHB) is a TV station affiliated with Fuji News Network (FNN) and Fuji Network System (FNS) serving in Hokkaido, Japan, headquartered in Sapporo, established 1972/4/1.

Through its Hakodate translator, UHB functions as the default FNN affiliate for most of neighboring Aomori Prefecture to the south, as that area does not have an FNN affiliate of its own.
