I’m not sure I’d want to do video calling on an HDTV, then again that big picture could make for some ‘interesting’ video calls… Anyway, the new 2010 Viera Cast Enabled HDTV models will have this feature but you’ll have to buy the Panasonic webcam for an additional $170 if you want to use it…
The launch of Skype on your VIERA on 2010 Panasonic VIERA CAST-enabled HDTVs will also be supported as part of Panasonic’s new VIERA HDTV advertising campaign. The Skype on your VIERA television ad is expected to air beginning in early June on local Network TV, national Cable TV and DirecTV. For a sneak peek at the ad, please visit http://www.youtube.com/panasonicusvideos.
Skype on your VIERA® delivers many familiar Skype features including: -- Free Skype-to-Skype voice and video calls -- Calls to landline or mobile phone at Skype's low rates -- The option to receive inbound calls via a user's online Skype number -- Skype voicemail (set-up required) -- Being invited to participate in voice conference calls with up to 24 other parties
