Comcast and Skype have entered into a strategic partnership that will enable Comcast customers to communicate with family and friends through HD video calling on their television.

Customers will soon be able to make and receive Skype video calls from their television, whether their friends and family use Skype on their home TVs, PCs, compatible smartphones or tablets. Through this arrangement, Comcast customers will be able to experience widescreen HD video calling that is immersive and natural.

Through the partnership, customers will be able to do make and receive Skype video and audio calls, or send instant messages via Skype on a television while watching their favorite TV show at the same time, and accept incoming calls during a TV show with the help of Caller ID.

They will also make and receive video and audio calls, or send instant messages via Skype on a compatible mobile phone or tablet. This service will be delivered on the Comcast customer’s HDTV through an adaptor box, a high-quality video camera, and a specially designed remote control that enables customers to text on Skype as well as control their television.
