Skype through your TV
Ready set, phone
Panasonic today debuted Skype functionality for a range of HDTVs.
Originally announced in January, Skype is now incorporated into Panasonic's VIERA CAST, a feature allowing users to access online content.
To use the Skype function, consumers must first purchase a separate proprietary HD camera. Spend £130 and you too can make "free" calls from the comfort of your settee.
Specially designed for Panasonic TVs, the TY-CC10W HD Communication Camera broadcasts 720p and picks up audio from sofa distance.
Camera creates cool couch calling capabilities
Available now from retail stores, or Panasonic's E-Shop.
