skyping friends while watching television

watching Three's Company.. and talking on skype by Jen

Clearly these two behaviors go together well. Watching television can be a social activity, something to talk about or to talk over. It's context or pretext for talking, grooming, bonding. Dancing.

Appointment television or event programming,

Events like political debates.

Ah, there's a US presidential debate tonight.

So, how could you more tightly couple TV+Skype? Watch TV in Skype? Talk (IM/voice/video) in Skype over TV?

Is that the sweet spot for Skype integration into television viewing?

Is this a reason to build Skype into Joost? into TiVo? into Hulu or YouTube?
