Operators can leverage Horizon to offer shortcut buttons to their own services (such as customer care and subscription data) and content partners, all in a dynamic way through a cloud-based content management system.
With this international release, operators can now also offer zero-rating within a particular extension, which allows their customers to use that service – whether a social media, news or sports extension - at no additional cost against their prepaid or postpaid data bundle. This enables operators to create sponsored and ad-supported experiences with publishers and to engage data consumers with no-risk content.
Horizon also allows for a personalized and value-added experience within the Horizon browser bar. Consumers who opt in are easily able to add new extensions from a curated catalog, remove them, rearrange them, and even create their own extensions from their favorite mobile websites.
