Media Browser

Media Browser ( is a handy service, which turns your home PC into a multimedia server. With apps available for both Windows 8 and Windows Phone, consumers are able to access remote content on smartphones, tablets and other supported devices.

The Windows Phone app is on sale for this weekend only, so if you've yet to set up your own home server, be sure to give Media Browser a shot.

As well as the special offer for this weekend only (50 percent off), we've been informed that some new major functionality will be added to Media Browser soon, including localisation with new languages – German, French, Dutch, Swedish and Portuguese – and live TV.‏

The server will be able to stream live programming, while enabling users to set up and configure recordings, which will also be featured in the Windows Phone client itself. Sound good? Here's a quick tease:
