What is RSS?

RSS (most commonly expanded as Really Simple Syndication) is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works - such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video - in a standardized format. They benefit readers who want to subscribe to timely updates from favored websites or to aggregate feeds from many sites into one place.

How Do I Subscribe to RSS?

In order to receive RSS content on your computer, you will need an RSS reader, feed reader, or news aggregator. Once you have one of these types of readers installed on your computer, you can simply subscribe to the RSS feed by entering the feed's link into the reader or by clicking an RSS link which then initiates the subscription process. Your RSS reader then regularly checks the feed for new content, downloading any updates that it finds.

You can also receive the RSS content on your computer by using the latest version of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome or Safari browsers. All of these browsers have RSS readers that allow you to view and subscribe directly through the browser application.
