Thurrott's report comes after Microsoft confirmed that Windows Media Center will not be included with Windows 10 due to "decreased usage."

"Of course, many Media Center fans actually use the product to record and watch TV shows via Media Center PCs in the living room," according to the story. "Microsoft's solution for this need will apparently be the Xbox One, though the console currently only provides live TV watching, but not recording. My sources tell me that will change, and most probably this year, to include TV recording."
