    What is RSS?


    In a world heaving under the weight of billions of web pages, keeping up to date with the information you want can be a drag.

    Wouldn't it be better to have the latest news and features delivered directly to you, rather than clicking from site to site? Well now you can, thanks to a very clever service, RSS.

    There is some discussion as to what RSS stands for, but the majority plump for 'Really Simple Syndication'. Put plainly, it allows you to identify the content you like and have it delivered directly to you.

    It takes the hassle out of staying up-to-date, by showing you the very latest information that you are interested in.

    Not all websites currently provide RSS, but it is growing rapidly in popularity and many others, including the Guardian, New York Times and CNN do provide it.

    We have RSS feeds for both our text and video stories.
