The Samsung LED 7000 and 8000 series televisions include Samsung’s Internet@TV service, which allows access to select online content.
Users will still have to buy a FREETALK TV Camera, which will be available soon in the Skype Shop, the two companies confirm.
Using the TVs’ remote controls, consumers can create free Skype accounts, log into their existing accounts and navigate via the on screen interface on the TV.
Skype video calls will be free, as will voice calls between Skype users. Using Skype to call traditional landline and mobile phones will cost just pennies per minute.
