Zdnet reports today that Skype’s iPhone app got a big update today, including support for making video calls to “a wider selection of Skype clients and devices.”

Specifically, iOS devices can connect to Skype for TV-enabled screens now. Of course, the Internet-connected TV will need to have a compatible app, so that should go at least for Samsung, LG and Panasonic Viera Cast/Connect displays. It will also depend on how much you want to see someone’s face blasted across a screen so large, but at least you have the option now.

Skype for iPhone, by adding H.264 support, now brings video calls to the full range of Skype devices and Connected TV s including Samsung and Panasonic (there are currently four Panasonic models G25, G20, VT20, VT25 and two Samsung models C7000, C8000 which are compatible with Skype video calls from the iPhone). iPhone Skypers can now also Skype to computers and other connected devices like Blu-ray players.
