Windows 8 Pro digital download includes Windows Media Center

I read an online article today that the digital download of Windows 8 Pro includes Windows Media Center so we don't need to install the WMC separately. Is this true?

I am afraid to inform you that Windows 8 operating system doesn’t include Windows Media Centre; however you need add this feature. Please refer the following links.
