If you own one of the web connected SonyBravia TVs or the VizioVia TVs that have apps and connectivity you will get more access soon. Skype has announced that it is bringing its video chat service to the sets soon.
The service will require a webcam of some sort to work and will operate pretty much just as it does on the Panasonic and Samsung sets that already support Skype today. Skype is also working with Sony and Panasonic to add Skype capability to other home theater gear.
Later this year Skype will come to Blu-ray players that are offered by Sony and Panasonic. They will be able to allow video calls on the TV when hooked to a webcam. No other details on availability were offered at this time.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
