Samsung smart tv HELP PLEASE skype not in app store

Reliable Adventurer

Not every Samsung Smart Tv is able to use Skype. Only LED D6500 and higer and plasma D8000.

I'm having the same problem like most on this forum.  The Skype apps was deleted when I installed the home theater system and I cannot find it anywhere.  Spent 4 hours with samsung tech support but not luck.  I checked milions of times under lifestyle but not luck.

How did you solve your problem? Samsung reload it in lifestyle for you?

I have reset my TV and did all the possible upgrade, please share any info.

Appraciate any help from anybody.

Did you ever get this problem sorted ? I have the 46 LED Smartv which I was told was Skype compatible. No sign of the SKYPE App

I have the same problem with not being able to find the Skype App anywhere for our 55" LED Samsung.  I finally found the following site that shows you how to manually add it.  It mentions it is for the Samsung Plasma TV's, but works like a charm for my LED:


You need to know how to create your own HTTP web server or know of one that you can post this to in order for it to work.


Good luck!

I have the samsung camera. I can log into my skype account, but I cannot get any further. I do not get the menu coming up to allow me to set contacts. Don't know where to look for it.

I have a UA-55ES8000R Samsung Smart TV. I see skype in the store, but when I click "Download", the download button is gray for a short time, then change back to blue an it does not download. I can download just everything, except skype... thats weird!

Hi, I tried installing Skype manualy, but I think the skype app that you provided in the link in not really the skype app, but just the icons!!!


I get the skype icon, but it will not load!!!!!


I live in China, and bought the samsub es8000 3D smart TV because I wanted skype on my tv. but samsung app store is very limited, and has only chinese apps and NO SKYPE ;-(

If I could have the full skype app, or some one could give it to me, than I can install it manually.
