The service, powered by the MOBITV Connect Platform, is designed to enable Windstream’s residential customers to access content when and where they want it and sees the operator’s extendable, IP-based video delivery system offer app-based television that includes on-demand, live TV, catch-up TV, network DVR, and recommendations to consumers who will have the ability to download the app and view television on any of their popular connected devices, connected TVs, PCs, tablets, and mobile phones.

The service will launch in phases starting in select Windstream North Georgia markets, followed by its Lincoln, Nebraska markets. It is expected to be available across Kinetic by Windstream’s entire 18-state footprint this year.

“The future of entertainment for consumers is all about access,” said Jeff Small, president of consumer and small and medium business services for Windstream. “Kinetic TV combines access to popular movies and shows with the flexibility to watch on a variety of devices, at any time, at home or on the go, and at lower cost than traditional cable. It’s the perfect complement to Windstream Kinetic Internet.

“MOBITV is proud to service Windstream’s more than four million households with app-based TV on our future-proof, and agile platform,” added MOBITV CEO Charlie Nooney. “With the rapidly changing technological revolution in video, we’re proud to address operators’ needs, such as Windstream’s, to transition [its] pay-TV offerings to IP-based solutions.”
