Too restrictive a description, unless you want to keep the lawyers fat 
arguing about the semantics of the word "computer". 

The Dutch have a "Media Licence".

TBH I very happy that the licence will now apply to "on demand" content. 
Without that the BBC's income was set on a, possibly quite rapid, down ward 
direction as more and more people either cotton on or genuinely, never, 
ever, watch TV as it is being broadcast.
