RSS Feed​


What is RSS?

RSS (otherwise known as "Really Simple Syndication") is a data format for syndicating news and other information from websites.

RSS feeds provide free updates to your computer at designated intervals when content is updated on a website.

How do I subscribe to an RSS feed?

To receive the OEM's RSS feeds you may need to install an RSS feed reader. In more recent web browsers, feed readers are automatically in-built as standard features. If you are using Microsoft Outlook, Internet Explorer 7.0, 8.0 or Firefox (Mozilla), refer to the section on Browser Installation Guides below.

If you don't already have a feed reader installed in your browser, you may need to install a separate RSS feed reader application. The OEM does not endorse or offer technical support for any third party products, though some commonly used RSS readers are listed below:

Windows

Microsoft Outlook 2007

Internet Explorer 7.0 and 8.0

FeedReader

RSS Reader


MAC

NewsFire RSS

NetNews Wire

Readers for those with visual impairments

Podder

Browser Installation Guides

Internet Explorer 7.0 and 8.0

Firefox (Mozilla)

After configuring your browser or feed reader software, you will need to opt-in to receive the OEM​ RSS feed(s) of your choice by following the relevant links on the site (see OEM RSS feeds). Once you have successfully subscribed to a particular RSS feed, information is sent to you after it is published on the website.

Configuration Options

To ensure that you receive RSS feeds shortly after they are published, please make sure you select the following options (or similar) on your computer:

  • ​in your program's settings, opt to receive alerts at the shortest possible intervals
  • disallow or disable caching.​
