Skype enabled Blu-ray players coming too

If you own one of the web connected Sony Bravia TVs or the Vizio Via 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.
