Windows 8 Pro Media Center Pack Free For A Limited Time

In the run up to the highly anticipated launch of Microsoft’s Windows 8 later today, the company has announced that it will be offering a free Media Centre Pack for Windows 8 Pro users for a limited time.

Microsoft revealed that the free Media Center Pack would be available from today until January 31st 2012, to consumers who purchase or upgrade to Windows 8 Professional.

If you are considering upgrading to Windows 8 today, you might be pleased to know that the upgrade for Windows 8 Pro (Pack) is available to purchase for $39.99 ($69.99 for disc version) until January 31st 2012  as well. Microsoft Steven Sinofsky explains:

"This ensures that customers who are interested in Media Center have a convenient way to get it. Windows Media Player will continue to be available in all editions, but without DVD playback support. For optical discs playback on new Windows 8 devices, we are going to rely on the many quality solutions on the market, which provide great experiences for both DVD and Blu-ray.”

To grab your free copy of Microsoft’s Media Center Pack jump over to the Windows 8 website for more details and to upgrade your older copy of Windows.
