        Instead of making WMC more customer friendly, they made it hard to cost it more - upgarde + 10 $ WMC. some products managers and accountants planned easily to lose the family room to apple TV and chromecast. what a bunch of incompetent accounting managers.
        And do these ^%%% know even what is WMC.

        Oh and I dropped my Gold Membership because I no longer us just my Xbox 360 anymore because of now having a PS4 for nex gen gaming. Add WMC XB1 and you will get more gold memberships.

        I want to buy Xbox One but PS4 has my business instead for next gen gaming because YOU will not add Media Center Support to the XB1. Please Microsoft let me sell my PS4 because of your smart move to add WMC to XB1.

        I need to be able to store my videos, pictures and music on a network attached storage and be able to access them from my xbox one like I could from my 360. I don't know if this is actually Media Centre or just DLNA client access etc. but the xbox one should be able to playback videos etc. from anywhere (local, DLNA server, Windows PC's)

        Firstly, enable the OneGuide for the PC /Server with Multiple Live Tuner support and THEN allow the Xbox One to access these Networked Tuners via the Xbox OneGuide. Please also allow other mobile devices to access/stream via SmartGlass.

        Hopefully this should make an Xbox TV Receiver a reality :)

        If Microsoft or Silicondust would build the plugin app for HDhomerun prime, I would buy it in a flash.

        I too will not ever need to buy an Xbox One. When my Xbox 360 extenders die I'll just buy a 3rd party extender from Ceton or whoever. Why are you giving this money away Microsoft? If you add the extender functionality to Xbox One and make it only work with Windows 8.1 or 10, we will all upgrade our OS's (and maybe buy new HTPCs) AND also buy multiple Xbox Ones! I'm mean we WANT to give you our money... please let us!

        As previous commented I have four xbox 360s and I will replace all of them immediately if I have Windows Media Center extender capabilities!!!! Jump on this Microsoft and up your sales instantly! Also why would you drop such a loved feature of Xbox? I can understand maybe offering Media center as an addon to Windows 8 and 8.1 but why drop the functionality from your new Xbox? It just doesn't make any sense and I bet it is fairly minor to correct as well.

        Please reinstate this amazing feature asap.

        I own two Xbox 360s and want media center extender capabilities in Xbox One. I haven't upgraded to Xbox One for this reason.

        Even if there was no option to leverage the Xbox One's local hard drive as a DVR, adding this feature would be a boon to cable TV operators to offer a cloud DVR app specifically for Xbox One owners ("Record up to 10 hours of TV for your Xbox One for only $5 per month or unlimited storage for only $5 more!").

        I'd replace both of my Xbox 360s with Xbox Ones tomorrow if that was available.

        If Microsoft announced a Media Center Extender app for Xbox One on a Tuesday morning, I'd buy two Xbox One bundles at the nearest local retailer that afternoon to replace both of my Xbox 360s to watch TV (from my CableCARD-based HTPC) by dinner that evening... then I'll donate those Xbox 360s and all my games to an orphanage in Africa.

        To recap: All Microsoft has to do to enable buying local, donating to African orphans and closing the technology gap for the underprivileged is release a Windows Media Center Extender app for Xbox One.

        Your move, Microsoft...

        My 4 xbox 360's (and multiple Win 7 / 8 PCs) all access content from my MCE box (and Windows Home Server). It's a shame that my wife laments that the Xbox One in the living room is one of the least used devices we own. An MCE app on the Xbox One would rocket it up to number one used device.
