Comcast provides first glimpse at Skype TV app

Comcast announced at The Cable Show last month that it was preparing a TV-based version of Skype, and has taken another step in its buildup to the Skype-over-TV launch by rolling out a video demonstrating how the app will work.

So far, Comcast has not said what it will charge for the Skype TV app, but we know from the video that it is a pretty open, uncluttered user interface that will be operated via a remote control device. The app is due to be launched later this year and could open up a whole new venue in the burgeoning vide chat market.
