    How do I connect my Blu-ray player to the internet?

    Before you start Skype, you need to make sure that your Blu-ray player is connected to the internet. Some Blu-ray players use wired Ethernet connection and you’ll have to connect them to your router using a cable. Others use built-in WiFi or a WiFi dongle that is either included in the box or available for purchase from selected retailers.

    You can find more information on how to do this in your Blu-ray player’s instruction manual.

    Where can I find the Skype application on my Blu-ray player?

    After you’ve connected your Blu-ray player to the internet, you can start the Skype application. Skype will be listed in the Blu-ray player menu as one of the internet connected features. Simply select Skype from the menu to start the application.

    If you’re using a Panasonic Blu-ray player, you’ll find a Skype button on your remote control. To start the Skype application, simply press the Skype button on your remote control.

    How do I sign in to Skype on my Blu-ray player?

    When you open the Skype application, you’ll be prompted to enter your Skype Name and password to sign in. If you already have a Skype account, all you need to do is enter your sign-in details.

    If you don't have a Skype account yet, you can join Skype on your Blu-ray player. Simply select Create New Account and follow the on-screen instructions.

    Currently, you can’t sign in to Skype on your Blu-Ray player with your Microsoft or Facebook account.

    What happens if I exit Skype or put my Blu-ray player on standby?

    On some players, the first time you sign in to Skype on your Blu-ray player, you can set it to signing you in to Skype automatically every time you turn your player on.

    To do this on the Panasonic Blu-ray, simply select the Stay signed-in and receive calls after closing Skype option before signing in. You can also set the Panasonic Blu-ray to receive calls when the unit is in the standby mode.

    What happens to Skype when I watch a Blu-ray disc?

    If you are using a Panasonic Blu-ray player, you’ll be signed out automatically when you play a Blu-ray disc. Once you’ve finished watching the disc, you’ll be signed back in automatically.

    If you’re using a Sony Blu-ray player, you have to re-start Skype again manually after you’ve finished watching a disc.

    For further support, you can contact the Blu-ray player manufacturer.
