RSS Feeds

What is RSS?

RSS or Really Simple Syndication is an easy way to keep updated automatically on websites you like. Instead of having to visit the site to see if it has fresh content, you will get alerts to check out the updates that have been added to your favourite sites. An RSS service, also called an RSS channel, uses an XML format to list the fresh headlines and live links to a web page.

How do I use RSS?

You will need to install an app or program called a news reader on your PC, tablet or phone. This will display RSS information feeds from your favourite websites on your device. With the BT website, you'll need to choose which sections you want updates on - for example Banking & Finance, Companies & Markets, or Arts & Entertainment. You can add the channels you want from the list on the left after you've installed a news reader.

How do I get a News Reader?

There are a range of these available online, some of which are free. Feedly is one of the more popular options, which can be used on various devices and platforms. Some news readers only work on specific operating systems, so please take this into account when you choose one, and follow the instructions.
