Comcast outs Skype on Xfinity in Boston and Seattle

updated 06:45 pm EDT, Wed May 16, 2012

Nationwide rollout of Skype on Xfinity commences

Comcast has made its Skype on Xfinity system available in Boston and Seattle in the first stage of a nationwide rollout. The previously leaked Skype camera allows users to perform video calls through the service, with instant messaging available while watching TV at the same time.

The service will cost $10 per month to Triple Play customers, and an included hardware bundle supplies a camera, Skype adapter, and a Skype-enabled remote control with a keyboard on the back. Other Skype users do not need the service in order to receive calls.

By the end of this week, Atlanta and Augusta, GA; Chicago, IL; Detroit, MI; Harrisburg and Pittsburgh, PA; Indianapolis, IN; and Miami, FL will have access to the service, with other regions due to get it in the Summer.
