I tried to obtain it from the Add Features website, but it doesn't seem to work -- I tried two different e-mail addresses from different providers, waited 10 hours and checked my spam folders, but no message arrived.

When I use the "Add features to Windows 8" application, it allows to select the Media Center Pack, but says it will charge me about 10EUR for it. From what I understand, it should be free through January 2013.

Has anyone successfully installed this add-on? Is there another way to obtain it?

I had no problem adding it, seems like your email provider is to blame, I suggest an entirely differnt provide or simply use – Ramhound Oct 26 '12 at 21:51
I used Gmail and my employer's mail. At least Gmail should've worked... – DzinX Oct 26 '12 at 21:53
I'm still waiting for my code via email. It's been a day. – Ryan Oct 26 '12 at 21:53

Patience. I entered my email address yesterday and just received the code this afternoon. You will eventually get an email with the code.

Just got it, exactly at midnight. Maybe that's the rule? – DzinX Oct 26 '12 at 22:07
Could be. Except I'm located in Arizona, USA, so it's been Oct 26 for a while now. – Ryan Oct 26 '12 at 22:16
No, it's already Oct 27 here. – DzinX Oct 26 '12 at 22:25
