What is an RSS feed?

An RSS feed is a clever way of making sure that you automatically get the latest news from a website, without having to visit the site of interest all the time.

If you ‘subscribe’ to a ‘feed’, then the information is automatically sent to a ‘feed reader’ program on your PC, which will then let you know, and provide a precis of the new article or content.  You can then choose to go the site, and see the content in all its proper layout.

‘Subscribe’ simply means that you choose to have that ‘feed’ sent to you.  You don’t have to pay anything! BTW on some other sites you may also see the word ‘Syndicate’ - it means the same thing.
