    Free Media Centre Pack Offer


    Hi all

    Just received my free Media Centre Pack Key and I'm a little confused, hope someone can help.

    It states in the email with the key that it must be activated by 1st of Feb 2013. I'm wondering what will happen after that date if you do a clean install and you need to use the key again.

    Appreciate any thoughts.

    It will most likely expire and you may have to re-purchase. That's how I interpret that.

    It is just a way MS has of Knowing how many Media Center packs have been activated thus giving them an idea whether to continue with it or not.

I requested the Windows Media Centre last week. After completing the online information, I was advised I'd have to wait 72 hours.....well, I have certainly gone well past that. What I'm asking is, does anyone know who or how to contact MS to find out the situation with receiving the product. ...
I have given my email address in windows website for Windows 8 media centre pack for windows 8 pro but I didn't get the key it has been 24 hrs.
Or was I seeing things wherever I read that? Maybe that was only free for those purchasing the 8 upgrade from other OS's? I got my OS from my Technet Plus account. By the way, it works just fine.
