Cant sign into Skype account via Samsung SmartTV

Hi

 

I am in SA...my account works fine on my Ipad and Windows PC....but when i try to sign on via my Samsung Samrt TV   i just get the timer scrolling endlessly.

 

Anyone know if this app is blocked on the TV (although it downloaded fine)

We have just become aware of an issue which is causing some users to have problems signing in on some Skype-ready TVs. We are investigating this urgently and hope to have more information soon.

Re: Cant sign into Skype account via Samsung SmartTV

I'm having exactly the same problem, just bought a new Sansung UE40ES8000 smart tv, registered and set up Skype on the tv, everything seemed to work OK.....signed out and now I can't sign back into Skype....the timer just spins and seems to be stuck in a loop. I can sign in on my PC so it seems the problem is with the App on the tv. I hope this is fixed soon as Skype was one of the features I was hoping to use frequently.

Please have a look at Claudius' reply here: http://community.skype.com/t5/Skype-on-your-TV/Sign-in-problems-on-TV/m-p/979386#M1018
There is a workaround described which will allow you to use your TV while the problem is being resolved.

I got it working following advice, created a new account, logged in, logged out then logged in with original account having added my date of birth and gender to my profile. Seems crazy but it worked for me.

As a temporary workaround please login to your web profile page and enter date of birth and gender information there.
