Article Feeds Explained

What is an RSS feed?

RSS ('Really Simple Syndication' or 'Rich Site Summary') feeds keep you up to date with the latest content published on a specific website without you actually having to visit the site.

A website will generally have an RSS feed for every content channel. The moment a piece of content is published it is added to the RSS feed(s) of any channel(s) it appears in. Subscribe to RSS feeds and you will be informed when new content is added to the channels the RSS feeds relate to.

How do I view RSS feeds?

To start using RSS feeds, you need a news reader. Also called an RSS reader or feed reader, a news reader is a piece of software that tracks RSS feeds to keep you informed of new content or other updates on a given website. The news reader can aggregate RSS feeds from all your favourite sites, enabling you to browse news from multiple sources.

A news reader can be browser-based or downloaded onto your desktop or mobile device. There are numerous RSS readers to choose from, including on Google and Firefox and in Microsoft Office.

How do I subscribe to RSS feeds on

Just click on one or more feeds below that interest you. When the feed appears, select an RSS reader at the top of the page and click ‘subscribe now’ below. You will then be prompted to confirm your choice.

Alternatively, copy and paste the URL (web address) into your chosen news reader.

The news reader will immediately begin informing you of the latest content added to your chosen RSS feeds.
