Comcast to Let Customers Make Skype Video Calls Using TV

Comcast Corp., the largest U.S. cable company, is introducing a service that lets customers make Skype video calls over their televisions, part of a push to add revenue and stem subscriber defections.

The Skype on Xfinity service, which lets users make high-definition video calls, will start today in Boston and Seattle and be available in cities including Atlanta, Chicago and Miami by the end of the week, Comcast said today. The feature will cost $9.95 a month for Triple Play users, which get Comcast’s Internet, TV and voice services.
