Windows Home Basic doesn't include Media Center. Unfortunately, Media Centre is not available as a downloadable package either. You would need to install a version of Windows that already has it included(Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate, Enterprise).

A pretty good alternative would be XBMC. Its open-source and has a nice interface. http://xbmc.org
