RSS stands for 'Really Simple Syndication', and is a great way of delivering news headlines, video and podcasts directly to you.
Using a compatible web browser or special RSS news reader you can subscribe to one of the many feeds we offer. Once you have subscribed to your desired channels, we can deliver our latest headlines as soon as they are published directly to you - meaning you don't have to keep coming back to visit the site in order to keep up-to-date.
What News Reader?
It really is up to you to decide what you use to check RSS feeds you have subscribed to. The best solution for you depends on your browser or operating system and the way you'll find it easiest to follow the news.
Downloadable applications are best if you have a main computer, storing your RSS subscription updates locally.
Viewing RSS feeds in your browser is pretty easy. To add a feed in Internet Explorer 6, locate the orange RSS icon on the website and follow the link. Feeds also appear next to the home icon in Internet Explorer 7. To subscribe to a feed to Firefox, simply click the orange RSS icon on the page or in the address bar of the browser.
The process is very similar in Opera 8 or above and Safari on the Mac, the RSS icon appears in the address bar allowing you to directly subscribe using your browsers built in RSS reader.
