How do I get Media Center for Windows 8? I Just purchased a new PC with Windows 8.

I have been using a PC running Windows Vista and I have gotten used to Media Center especially for TV. My new PC has a TV card but no Media Center.

Can I get Windows Media Center for Windows 8? Why is it not included in this new product??

You may also upgrade to Windows7 Home Premium or Windows 7 Ultimate or,Windows 7 Professional to enjoy Windows Media Center,where it's a part of the OS and not as an add on pack.And you don't have to pay any extra $.
