Skype, the internet telecoms company owned by eBay, today moved closer
to becoming a major platform for digital content and hinted it could
soon offer online video services.

Underscoring how rapidly the media landscape is shifting, the news
came the day after BT revealed that it will move into television next
summer. The telecoms group will launch a set-top box that will enable
users to download programmes over broadband internet lines.

of Personalise Skype, a feature that means that callers can receive
and send pictures, sounds and ringtones over the Skype network.,,9076-1803303,00.html
