I'm still trying to get my windows 8.1 WMC, on Fios, to let me watch Fox DRM channels. HBO is out too!
Windows 7 let's me watch the fox channels, so I just want you to know that, so you don't built a windows 8.1 WMC when you get the key and find out DRM channels are out.
Playready and cable advisor are all messed up in windows 8.1 WMC!

There are threads on this, do some looking around. When you go through setup, the download of PlayReady will fail, WMC is dead according to Microsoft so the link is dead.

The process is to install PlayReady before running TV setup.

I've tryed it and it was a no go. I also updaded my win 8.1 last night and it crashed it, for HD prime, lucky I had a restore and set win 8.1 back. Still no go on the Fox show.
