Two things. First you need a supported hardware encoding TV Tuner.
Second, you need access to Windows XP MCE 2004. That's basically.

From what I understand about WMC, there is no needing anything, you cannot get WMC, except already on a system (with required hardware) to use WMC. The 2004 Edition is an upgrade, and can only be purchase from retailers who sell the media center systems.

Greetings --

Just the specific hardware with which it's sold. WinXP MCE is
available _only_ as a factory-installed OEM product on specifically
designed systems.

Not entirely true. There are three ways to get MCE:
1) Buy a Media Center Computer
2) MSDN Operating Systems (or higher) Subscription
3) Be a member of the System Builder Channel

In order for MCE to operate properly, you must have a supported Hardware
Encoding TV Tuner. It is possible to install MCE without a TV Tuner,
but the MCE part will not work. You also need a DVD Decoder installed.

I built my own MCE computer with an ATI eHome Wonder that I purchased
from newegg.com.
