Notice of Skype support termination

Jun. 27, 2016

Skype* has announced that starting in June they will no longer support Skype for TV.

*Skype Communications SARL, a division of Microsoft Corp.

The Skype app on the affected devices should still work, however some initial changes will be made as follows:

  • ● Skype will no longer issue new Skype Names; users with existing Skype Names can continue to use those to log into the Skype app.
  • ● Affected devices will not support the ability to change the password for Skype Names; if a password change is desired, that change will need to be made on another device.

For more information on the service changes, please visit the Skype website.
