Samsung TVs Get Skype
Samsung Electronics said Thursday that two of its new LED TV models will feature embedded Skype functionality. The TVs, in the 7000 and 8000 series, will arrive in the U.S. sometime in the first half of this year.
Panasonic and LG both announced similar Skype streaming deals at International CES last month.
“Our consumers want their televisions to be a ‘one-stop shop’ for entertainment and communication delivered with the highest quality,” Kevin Kyungshik Lee, Vice President of Visual Display at Samsung Electronics, said as part of the announcement. “Including Skype on our TVs meets that expectation perfectly.
