Microsoft recently announced it will stop providing TV guide data for Windows Media Center users in January 2020. Anyone who relies on this data for TV scheduling and DVR usage will need to configure an alternate provider on their systems.
While the free guide data is coming to an end, an excellent alternative is available. The most reliable combination to fit this need is Schedules Direct and EPG123. Schedules Direct provides a 7-day free trial, after which the service costs $25 per year. EPG123 offers a robust method of importing the listings into your Media Center database with the most accurate and detailed program information available. Its developer is committed to maintaining the software beyond the January 2020 cutoff of guide services from Microsoft.
In addition, ModernMedia application development will continue with updates and new releases coming soon.
Thanks to all who have supported this project, and long live WMC!
