Can you get Skype on a SHARP Aquos SmartTV?

post #1 of 3

I am picking out a new HDTV. I am looking at a SHARP Aquos LED SmartTV, and I would like to know if it is possible to get Skype on it. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I downloaded the User Manual of this Sharp HDTV LC-60LE640U and scanned through it. It neither comes with the Skype software built-in nor with a webcam/mic. So, in this sense, it does not support Skype out of the box.

However, I suppose you can hook this HDTV to your PC as a display. Then, together with a webcam/mic, it can become usable for Skype purpose.

If you wish to stick strictly with a Sharp HDTV with Skype support, perhaps LC-60LE745U is an option. It has the Skype software built-in but you still need to buy a compatible webcam/mic. Then, you do not need to use a PC at all.
