OK, at first I planned just using Classic Shell on top of W8 and never looking at Metro again.....but once things are set up how you like them, Metro is actually pretty nice. Thus far I have the standard streaming service apps, WMC and TMT, but what else do you guys use?

Also, does anyone know if there is a W8 Metro tile that allows you to search streaming services for the show/movie you want to want? like, if I wanted to watch The Big Bang theory, I type it into a search field and it'd tell me what service it was available on? Opening each service and searching each one individually is tedious. I have Netflix, hulu plus and amazon prime, if it matters...

I use classic shell on my laptop and it can work without disabling any metro functions, you just get a start bar on top of it.

My HTPC is still on Win7; my main rig has Win8. I got a Blu-ray drive coming for this rig tomorrow; so TMT6 will be added to this Metro section then.
