With today’s announcement that Samsung have joined Panasonic and LG in offering Skype in their upcoming televisions, it raises the question as to whether or not people would actually use it.
Personally, I only really Skype when I’m overseas and need to call home, and now that I’m a dad I could actually see this being useful to talk with the whole family. But it’s certainly not a feature I’d look for when buying a new TV. Even though I like the idea, I’d much prefer access to online content over Skype functionality (or in an ideal world, both).
What about you? Does Skype on the TV excite you in unnatural ways?
