Actually, the German statutory TV/radio media fee is supposedly payable only for live feeds, which state TV in Germany does not in fact provide. Hence, internet-enabled PCs basically count as radios, as state radio does offer live feeds. The fee for TV sets is higher than that for radios.

The whole issue is becoming moot since the per-device fee will soon be replaced by a per-household levy that everyone will have to pay regardless of whether they actually own, or use, a TV/radio/internet-enabled computer.
