this product is great value for the money This product has a great picture quality and is well worth the money 29 July 2014
Not as smart as you think This isn't really a smart TV, it just has a small collection of apps to give an illusion of being smart. But as a standard TV at the price it is excellent, Picture quality is first rate and the sound is very good considering the tiny speakers. 25 July 2014
40" led tv very gd quality tv, only downside is sound 24 July 2014
television this product is very good and very well priced 24 July 2014

Answer: 
Skype software is pre loaded on to this model. In order to access the Skype app you will need to connect the TV to your home network either through a LAN connection or through a wireless connection (Wi-Fi dongle available from Argos). you will also need to purchase the Skype camera that Argos are promoting with this model.
