Microsoft has announced that it is killing off its Skype for TV app this year, the app will no longer be supported from June 2016.
From June you will no longer be able to create a new account on Skype for TV or reset your password, the app may still continue to function on some Smart TVs.
Since 2010, Skype has delivered a great calling experience in the living room in partnership with several TV manufacturers. But over the years, users have changed the way they use Skype, with the majority accessing it from a mobile device – including when in the living room. We want to make sure we prioritize delivering the best possible experience to the platforms our users are asking for, which is why we’ve decided to focus our efforts in other areas while supporting key functionality on Skype for TV for as long as possible.
