Windows 8 – Free Windows Media Center Upgrade Key until Jan. 31 2013!
12-24-12: Initial release.
Did you know that if you are a Windows 8 Pro user right now, and that if you wanted to get the Windows Media Center package, you can get it for free for a limited time with an upgrade key through January 31st, 2013?
Yup, its true. If you go to the link at the end of this blog article, all you got to do is enter in your e-mail address, and within 72 hours, an activation key is sent to you. I got mine within a minute of submission.
Now I’ve been scouring the Internet for last few minutes, and I’m not 100% sure if you can use the Windows WMP upgrade key from a fresh install of an unactivated Windows 8 Pro or not. I’m thinking yes, but not so sure.
Will the WMP key work if you are upgrading from Windows XP, Vista, or 7? I’m not sure myself on that one either, I can only talk about what the key is meant to do.
If you know the answer, or want to experiment, let us know in the comments! Thanks!
