Get Skype on your TV: Samsung joins the team
At CES in January we announced partnerships with Panasonic and LG to bring Skype to some of their Internet-connected HDTVs.
Many of you asked if we were working with other manufacturers to do the same, and so today we’re very happy to announce a third member of the club. All Samsung LED 7000 and 8000 models will have Skype built in. Even better, they’re available in South Korea today, and will be coming to the rest of the world in the first half of this year.
If you buy a Samsung LED 7000 or 8000 TV and connect it to the Internet, all you’ll need to do is attach a FREETALK TV Camera for Samsung, which will be available soon in the Skype Shop.
Once you’ve done that, you’ll be able to make voice calls and High Quality Video calls. Voice calls will use Skype’s SILK audio codec for the best possible calling experience.
