YouTube TV has become one of the top services for streaming traditional TV over the internet, and some ISPs have partnered with Google to push the service on their customers. Today, Windstream has announced a partnership with YouTube TV.

In a press release today, Windstream announces that it has partnered with YouTube TV to provide its Kinetic Internet subscribers as an alternative to traditional cable. As more customers cut the cord, ISPs such as Windstream are taking notice and partnering with major streaming players to give their customers a recommended option.

As far as we can tell, there are no discounts or perks involved with this partnership, but Windstream will promote YouTube TV to its customers. Currently, YouTube TV is prominently featured on the company’s “TV and Entertainment” page.
