LG Electronics and Skype have announced that LG’s 2010 HDTVs with NetCast Entertainment Access will feature embedded Skype software, allowing Skype users to make voice and high-definition video calls on their TV. Skype on the new LG HDTVs will be demonstrated this week at the International Consumer Electronics Show.

Beginning this spring, Skype will be available on 26 new LED, LCD and plasma HDTVs planned for 2010. The application takes video calling beyond the computer to the television. By purchasing a separate camera with an integrated microphone, consumers can conduct HD video and voice calls by accessing Skype through the NetCast on-screen menu.
