Windstream is all set to bundle DirecTV products with its Kinetic-branded high-speed internet services. The deal has shown exit door to DISH Network which was previously associated with the US voice and data network provider.
While the deal allows the US telco to DirecTV’s satellite TV and (over-the-top) OTT service to its portfolio for residential customers, it will continue to offer its fiber-based IPTV service, Kinetic TV, where it’s available.
Jeff Small, President of the Windstream consumer and small business segment, quoted, “DirecTV offers a diversity of product choices that will be a great fit for our customers who want premium entertainment at great prices. Our Kinetic by Windstream customers can now enjoy quality programming coupled with cutting-edge technology. This fits perfectly with our digital entertainment strategy.”
