Super Bowl Parties From Afar Via Skype

This Sunday marks a huge annual event in the United States – the Super Bowl. Culminating the entire football season, the New York Giants will take on the New England Patriots to determine who will be the National Football League champion. A favorite day for many, this Sunday die-hard fans will fill sports bars, restaurants and friends or family’s homes to gather around the big screen and root for their favorite team or watch the famously expensive commercials.

If you’re missing out on a special Super Bowl party due to other obligations, Skype can help you take part in the fun – no matter your location. Use Skype group video calling on your PC or Mac to get up to nine other friends in on the call and critique the plays together. Want to share the game on the big screen TV with cross-country dad? With the new Skype-enabled Panasonic Viera TV, use the Split Screen feature and you’ll be able to hold a one-on-one video chat WHILE watching the game.

Lucky enough to be watching the game from the sidelines of the actual Super Bowl? Share the moment and call your best friend football fanatic and show him the game face-to-face with Skype mobile video calling on the iPhone or Android. If they don’t answer when you call, try sending video mail with Qik Video Connect or even live stream the game to your Facebook, YouTube or Twitter page! No matter where you are watching the game this Sunday, there is no reason not to watch it with your closest friends and family with Skype!
