Microsoft has confirmed that there will be no Media Center software for Windows 10. Any PC upgraded from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 will lose the feature and there's no way to get it back. Microsoft has focused on TV and entertainment features in it Xbox One. And with the rise of the "cord-cutting" movement, with consumers increasingly turning to streaming services and ditching cable subscriptions, it's hard to fault the economics of Microsoft's decision.

Windows 10 will have some type of DVD playback option. Cable on PC is dead already.

Cable tv on pc isn't dead there are people on a pension that had to choose between a tv and a computer because of the amount of room we have so since we are not allowed to use windows media centre in windows 10 we are forced to use the older software that comes with some of the tv turner cards which causes the blue screen so we have to try again when windows starts back up.....I have tried the third party software on the internet but the only 1 that would detect my tv turner is windows media centre so I guess if I want to keep using windows 10 I have to keep putting up with the problems from my old software that came with my tv turner card
