The company applied for a cable TV video franchise in North Carolina in August.

"Earlier this year we announced 1 Gig service to North Carolina residents. The launch of Kinetic marks an important next step in our continued commitment to providing North Carolina residents with access to high-quality TV and Internet experiences."

Kinetic is powered by the Ericsson Mediaroom platform. Features include HD video, whole-home DVR, wireless set-top box for additional TVs, VOD and Kinetic on the Go multiscreen service. Windstream's Kinetic Preferred Bundle plus 1 Gbps Internet is $99.99 per month for the first year.

North Carolina is the fourth Kinetic market following successful launches in Lincoln, NE; Lexington, KY, and Sugar Land, TX.
