Unfortunately Skype is not currently available on the BlackBerry PlayBook, though it is officially available for devices such as the BlackBerry Q10 & Dev Alpha C, soon for the Z10 when it updates to 10.1.
I think there is a possibility that the PlayBook will get Skype after BlackBerry 10 is made available for the PlayBook itself.
For the meantime I suggest using FaceFlow Video Chat via the PlayBook Browser. Or, if you prefer; Check out http://imo.im and use Skype through the browser.
