Skype for Apple TV beta
Developer Brandon Holland recently unveiled a downloadable beta version of his Apple TV Skype plugin that uses a standard USB VoIP handset to make calls through the Apple TV. The plugin is a front-end, and requires the Skype framework to be installed prior to use. Holland offers a fairly in-depth video tour of the as-of-then working features, giving users a technical demonstration of the software's capabilities.
Holland says that there is currently no accompanying documentation at the moment, but that it will follow shortly. Installation and setup are currently on a do-it-yourself basis.
