Microsoft Media Centre software makes Europe debut

Microsoft will launch the latest version of its Windows Media Centre software, bringing television capabilities and personal video recording on the PC to European buyers.

The company is keeping the software under wraps, but the most interesting aspect for Europe is likely to be the video and television components.

Media Centre allows users to watch television on their PC monitor and, using a tuner card inside the PC, operate it like a set top box, pausing and recording live TV.

These capabilities have been available in the US, Canada and South Korea since October last year.
