If Media Center were broken apart, and Live TV became it's own application in Windows 8, what might the experience be like? Here's one concept.
Taking cues from what limited applications
we've seen for Windows 8, Television would be a Windows Phone-like hub into how you watch television using your PC. Featuring a focus on your favorite channels, you'd get a quick view of the current channel your watching (it would be live in the background if it's currently active), as well as what's coming up, plus access to the full TV guide and your recorded TV.
Simple enough, this isn't likely to happen due to the extremely limited use of Media Center
by consumers, but one could dream what a first-class experience could be like in the upcoming OS.
