You can watch past programmes on the iPlayer but not the ones currently being broadcast.
If your laptop has a TV card installed then you will need a licence.
Shops are supposed to pass your personal details to the licensing authority when you buy any equipment. I was caught out when I bought my mother a combined VCR/DVD player as a present and had to write them a letter giving the address to which the equipment was delivered.
