Skype coming soon to Sony BRAVIA and VIZIO VIA TVs
Last year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), we ushered in a new era of face-to-face communications with the introduction of Skype-enabled TVs. This year at CES, we’re making further strides in the living room by making it even easier to get Skype on your TV.
I’m pleased to let you know that Sony and Vizio plan on shipping Skype-enabled Sony BRAVIA and VIZIO VIA TVs later this year, joining the products from Panasonic and Samsung that are already available to buy.
We’ve also been working with Panasonic and Sony to make it easy for you to get Skype on your existing TV. Soon you’ll be able to buy a Skype-enabled Panasonic or Sony Blu-ray Player and webcam and enjoy rich, real-time video conversations with friends and family around the world from your living room.
Ubiquity, intimacy, accessibility: this is what Skype is all about. I’m proud to say that we’re keeping our promise of letting you make video calls wherever you choose, including from your TV. So here’s to looking at you – or to you looking at your wife, grandchild or best friend — for free, from the comfort of your couch.
