Skype coming to a TV near you…

Both LG and Panasonic are working with Skype to produce the capability of accessing Skype directly from within your TV.  Although it’s likely you’ll need to purchase an additional TV webcam (which will feature the camera and microphone), both manufacturers will be offering Skype within their Internet-connected TV ranges, allowing you to make and receive calls (and even make HD video calls if you have sufficient bandwidth).  It should be noted you need the webcam even for just audio calls, as the TVs won’t ship with microphones, so the only microphone available will be from the combined webcam / microphone unit.
