Media juggernaut NewsNet is Horizon’s flagship in Seattle. NewsNet has a well-deserved reputation for impartiality, broadcasting stories that would be “killed” in other trid networks (along with the offending reporter).
Pop culture is another Horizon specialty. Between RockNet’s edutainment broadcasting and their line of A Whole New You™ clinics, the megacorp is quite literally shaping the minds and bodies of Seattle. Horizon is also a major provider of legal recreational drugs, competing with heavies like Universal Omnitech and Shiawase Medical.
Horizon sponsors public schools in Seattle’s poorest districts, supplying them with the latest in edutech. Each kid gets a free commlink with a package of educational software and free subs to specialized Horizon media feeds. In return, Horizon gets to keep records of their social and spending habits. The kids have to deal with Horizon’s content filters and personally-tailored advertising/marketing schemes, but they get a far better education then they normally would.
