RSS (or Really Simple Syndication) provides a convenient way for you to receive content “feeds” from a variety of sources, including the latest news and content from When you subscribe to an RSS feed, new stories and updates are automatically delivered to you the moment they are published.

In order to subscribe to feeds, you need to download news reader software or use a Web-based news reader. This allows you to access all your feeds in one convenient location.

So How Does This All Work?
A feed reader is an application known as an aggregator or news aggregator that retrieves syndicated content that is supplied in the form of a web feed (usually in the formats of RSS, Atom or javascript formats). RSS readers allow you to display and subscribe to the RSS feeds you want. These readers can either be Standalone or Plug-in.

Standalone readers are applications that run in the background on your desktop and automatically update your subscribed feeds. Plug-in readers work within one of your existing programs such as Microsoft Outlook, Firefox or Internet Explorer. There are a variety of RSS readers available. To the right we have suggested some you may like to try out.

Subscribing To An RSS Feed
To subscribe to headlines, right click on one of the feed urls, and select “Copy Shortcut” or “Copy Link Location” to copy the location (URL) of the service. Paste this location into the appropriate channel of your news reader by following the instructions within that application.

Another method is to click on a feed link to open in a new window, select the URL in the address bar and copy and paste it into your feed reader.

Reading Articles
Once you have subscribed to the RSS feeds that you want, your RSS reader will automatically update with the latest news.

The feed reader will present you with easy-to-browse headlines and short summaries, including links to the full article. You can see what’s new, and read only the articles that interest you.
