Short answer: Port 808 is used by the Net.TCP Port Sharing service, associated with Internet Information Services through the Windows Communication Foundation. Without it, IIS generally will not work.
Port 808 is used by the Net.TCP Port Sharing service, associated with the Windows Communication Foundation. Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is a framework for building service-oriented applications.
Port Sharing is commonly used by network applications that utilise the HTTP protocol as it is (on most networks) allowed by default.
A few examples in which WCF may be used are:
- A secure service to process business transactions.
- A service that supplies current data to others, such as a traffic
report or other monitoring service.
- A chat service that allows two people to communicate or exchange data
in real time.
- A dashboard application that polls one or more services for data and
presents it in a logical presentation.
- Exposing a workflow implemented using Windows Workflow Foundation as
a WCF service.
- A Silverlight application to poll a service for the latest data
"Many network applications make use of the HTTP protocol because most firewalls are configured by default to allow traffic on TCP port 80."
Therefore, Microsoft needed to implement a way to allow multiple applications running through IIS to share the same port, thus the concept of Net.TCP Port Sharing was born.

***** ORIGINAL ANSWER *****
Port 808 is the Microsoft Net.TCP Port Sharing Service.
"Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) provides a new TCP-based network protocol (net.tcp://) for high-performance communication. WCF also introduces a new system component, the Net.TCP Port Sharing Service that enables net.tcp ports to be shared across multiple user processes."
