    I hope this means that they will be updating WMC.

    We wouldn't know until MS announces something about it. Win 10 is far from completion.

    I'm not altogether sure MS is even going to continue WMC. There's plenty of apps to play DVD's and WMP supports plenty of file types.

    I don't see them discontinuing it at this pint. Windows 8 has it and it is more about TV Tuners than DVD. Who even uses DVD anymore. WMC is the only software on the planet that will playback cable card encrypted channels.

    A lot of people still use them. People still cling to older technologies.

    There truly are not any Media Center software solutions that can match Microsoft's Media Center, and it is not necessarily clinging to older technology, it is really the only superior technology available.

    Without Media Center Windows 10 would be next to useless for our house hold. We use our TVs as our PC screens and Media enter for LiveTV via comcast, saves us $50 a month in set top box fees. If it is not available then Windows 10 is out for us.

    Code:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>Dism /Online /Get-TargetEditions
    
    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.10049.0
    
    Image Version: 10.0.10049.0
    
    Editions that can be upgraded to:
    
    Target Edition : ProfessionalWMC
    Target Edition : Enterprise
    Target Edition : Education
    
    The operation completed successfully.
    Apparently WMC it exactly the same as currently in Windows 8.

    I wonder if MS are working on a modern app replacement for WMC to which I won't say no to using.

    I'm back on 8.1 due to lack of media center, I've tried lots of other TV apps but nothing is as usable as WMC and after months on 10 I reverted back for the WMC.
