with 2 comments

Up until Jan 15 (2009) I’m offering a BIG discount on the Big Screen apps for Vista Media Center – and you can get them for a for only USD$14.95 each. (which is up to 40% of the SRP).

To get this special price – you will need to supply a discount code. See original email below for how to get this offer (and some further instructions on how to enter the discount codes below that) –

Note: This offer was also emailed out earlier this week to registered users (that had the ‘contact me about offers.. etc’ option enabled on their account profile). Although I’ve made an exception this time (and decided to announce this on my blog) – please ensure you do sign up for an account (and check the appropriate notification options) to find out about specials like this (and other product announcements).




Since I’ve had a few emails in the past on how to purchase/apply discount codes – – please see this quick guide below :


1. If you’ve already signed up for a trial version of the product you want to purchase (and you will have a account) – the ‘Buy Now’ button will be made available via your account management page as per the picture below.

Note : You can also get to this ‘Buy Now’ button via the ‘purchase’ page for each product (and you will be asked to create a account if you don’t have one or sign in to your existing account if not already signed in).


2.  When you get to this page the full RRP will be shown. You can then enter the ‘discount code’ in the supplied text box. (example below for the above offer) :


3. Once you have entered the code and clicked the ‘Submit’ button – the page will be refreshed with the new discounted price. At this point you can click on the BUY NOW button to continue with your purchase.



4. After you complete the purchase (via Paypal) – you will then be the proud owner of a big screen product license. If you already installed a trial version of the purchased product – and nominated to ‘upsize’ your existing Serial Number (during purchase) – then all you need to do is run the product inside Media Center where you can ‘reverify’ the product (which will automatically remove the trial limitations/expiry dates). If you were issued a new Serial Number – then you can run the Product Registration tool and enter your new serial number without requiring a reinstall of the product (located in the Windows Start Menu – via the Appropriate Big Screen subfolder). 

Please see the faq+support section for more details on purchasing/activation and ..


Happy purchasing – and remember this special discount will expire on Jan 15…

  1. wow, that is very generous of you. Now if we purchase theses, will the licenses qualify for the Windows 7 version of these add-ins as well?

  2. Hi – Yes – the Windows 7 compatible (re)builds of these apps won’t be considered to be a new version (and just a v2.x release) – so any existing serial numbers (issued for Vista versions) will also be valid for these releases (and vice versa).Please note of course its possible that each new interim beta version of Windows 7 (that comes out before the final RTM version) may require a new build to be created (depending on what MS decide to do with binary compatibility on the Public API’s) – and I will try to ensure the major beta releases are covered where possible (ie. the first Windows 7 release will be made available for the upcoming public beta version shortly after it’s available).cheers Niall
