I have decided to get a USB TV tuner so that I can use it with my

I think so. But I also believe that you can get round it by watching
etc. over the internet. IANL of course!
Unfortunately you can't. You still need a TV licence to watch via
iPlayer. It says so on the BBC web site.
It is true that you need a TV licence to watch programmes that are
currently being broadcast ("as the programmes are being broadcast,
simulcast or otherwise made available by the BBC on television").
However, programmes that were are not being broadcast at the time may be
watched, in the UK only, without a TV licence, for as long as they are
available on iplayer. The BBC would like to close this loophole.
