    All of the above.
    It's free untill Jan 31st.
    The free keys must be activated at least once before Jan 31st or they expire.
    Once activated you can use them again and agin on the same PC you activated them on, even after Jan 31st.
    You will have to install and activate Windows 8 Pro before you can use your Media Center key in add features.

    Hi brink,
    yes i am using the above link (Add features .....) and i put the captcha code and my hotmail email (new email for my win8).
    And i press the blue button and i get the error i mentioned. Does it work for you ?!?
    Have they disabled this feature ? I dont understand.
    My windows are authorized, windows updates work perfectly and everything else is fine....I just cant get a key for the media center...meaning no TV for me :P

    Yep, it still works just fine for me.

    Do you have cookies enabled?

    Did you already get 5 keys?

    Do you meet all of the requirements at the link below it sent you to?

    Not sure then. You might try again at an off peek time period to see if it may work for you then.

just go here Add features - Microsoft Windows to receive you free CD key
I used Add Features to add free Windows Media Center. After reboot there is no indication of it anywhere. Nothing in Start menu or control panel. I use Ex7ForW8 to get a Win 7 style desktop and start menu. Is this a Metro/modern only app?
Windows Media Centerr is being offered free from Microsoft (providing you have Windows 8 Pro) until late January. The website is here Add features - Microsoft Windows But: The website has been having a problem so if you want the Media Center Application you need to call Microsoft at...
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.
If anyone has already gotten their Windows 8 Pro you can download Media Center for free until January 31 2013, must be activated before then also. Add features - Microsoft Windows
