      Make calls and video calls with Skype on your TV.

      OMade possible by Internet@TV - bringing useful and entertaining features directly from the web to your TV.


      Connect your webcam directly to the TV, not through a USB hub.

      If the webcam isn't working properly, turn the TV off then on again, and relaunch Skype.

      Skype is disabled when the TV is turned off.

      Voice quality may be affected in a noisy environment.

      Using a wireless network can degrade call quality.

      Use of the Skype software is subject to the Skype End User License Agreement (skype.com/legal/eula), Skype Terms of Service (skype.com/legal/tos) and the Skype Privacy Policy (skype.com/legal/privacy/ general).

      If Skype is deleted or upgraded, saved information (History and Options) is deleted.
