We have this tax in Germany as well. They just don't call it a tax, but every household and company has to pay 216 Euro/year.

They used to bind it to having a computer/radio/tv/mobile phone (with radio/internet) but now you even have to pay if you don't own any of those.

Same here in Italy. Here they tax for any apparatus that is meant or adaptable to receive tv or radio signals. So basically anything with a graphical display.
