You computer will restart a couple of times and then Windows 8 Media Center will get installed, after you log back in to your account a new tile will appear in the Start screen. If you used Windows MC in the past, you already know the benefits: Watch, record, pause and fast-forward live TV, plus the ability to manage all your media with a remote control (or 10-foot experience).
