You may soon have to pay a TV licence fee, if you own a computer.
The move is part of plans to widen the net for those who have to pay the €160 each year.
Communications Minister, Denis Naughten, wants to make anyone with a computer screen over 11 inches pay the full TV licence fee.
An extra €5 million a year could be raised by extending the charge to include those using laptops, PCs and tablets.
It's estimated that 32,500 or almost 1 in 10 households no longer has a traditional TV set but many are still accessing content on the internet.
Full details of the charge have yet to be worked out, including how it would be enforced.
