Because if he is, it would be the first thing the television series kinda gives away, instead of the book. Granted, the book has given a strong hints on the identity of Coldhands, but if that is Coldhands, it kinda seals the deal.
No, that's a White Walker.

There's nothing that could be interpreted as Coldhands. Coldhands looked like wight (i.e. a human with white skin, blue eyes, and black hands), not a White Walker. He wears Night's Watch cloaks, has his face covered, and first appeared riding a stag. Even if they replace it with a horse (which wouldn't make sense since stags would be find in the wild north of the Wall), it's a White Walker.

One theory of Coldhands' identity is that he's Benjen, who was turned into a wight by White Walkers but saved by the Children of the Forest. His warging abilities are due to his Stark blood. He goes to great lengths to keep his face covered, which people interpret because he doesn't want Bran to recognize him.
