Windows Media Center 2006-2015

Used in Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1. Windows Media Center stopped development in 2009, shortly after Windows 7 released, thus making Windows Media Center on Windows 8 and 8.1 unchanged. Windows Media Center was shut down in 2015 and replaced by paid DVD Player app for Windows 10. Note that it mainly still works, despite being out of support. On January 14, 2020, the end of support date for Windows 7, EPG data (Program Guide Data Service) for Windows Media Center are no longer available for download from Microsoft. This icon was seen as early as build 5270.
