The move shouldn’t come to anyone surprise, it’s been more than five years since the company stopped the development. Microsoft first introduced the feature in 2001, it was designed to run a set-top box experience focus on videos, music, and live TV, but it actually never caught the attention of enough users. The company still focuses on TV and entertainment features, but on a different device. Xbox One is the company’s answer for games, movies, music, and live TV. If you’re a Windows Media Center fan, you’ll have a hard choice to make this summer – Stick with Windows 8.1 or upgrade for free to Windows 10 and lose the feature.
