In case you haven’t noticed, time is running out on all of Microsoft’s promotions surrounding Windows 8. There is one detail that deserves being mentioned again though. Those free product keys for Windows 8 Media Center that you snatched up over the last few months can only be activated through February 1, 2013. Many have gone over to the Windows 8 Feature Packs site to register for their five free (you only requested five, right?) Media Center Pack product keys. We’ve known from the beginning that the offer to get the keys for free was only good through the end of this month. What you may not have realized is that in the fine print it states:
Your product key must be activated no later than January 31, 2013.
Oddly enough, the email(s) that you’ve received says that it must be activated no later than February 1. Either way, time is running out! If you just can’t be pressured into making a decision right now there is a bright spot. If you don’t act now, but decide you want it later, it will only set you back $9.99.
You only have about ten days left to activate that Media Center key, so will you? We want to know! With so little time remaining, will you be installing Media Center on your Windows 8 machines? Answer in our poll!
Thanks for reminding us Brent!
