News feeds (RSS feeds) are an easy way for you to keep up to date with the latest news and information. Rather than having to visit the DCMS site every day you can subscribe to our feeds and have the information summaries delivered to you. DCMS news feeds are compliant to RSS version 2.0.
Using our News Feeds
In order to view a feed you will require a feed reader. There are many readers available. Many are free of charge and more are appearing all the time. Here are some of the popular ones:WindowsFeedDemonAwasuOmea Reader
MacOs XNetNewsWire LiteVienna
You can also view feeds if you have an RSS enabled browser - such as Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer - or by signing up to an online service like
BloglinesMy Yahoo!Netvibes Feedshow
Once you have chosen a feed reader, you can begin to subscribe to the RSS feeds. Copy the news feed (or drag and drop the RSS button) into the newsreader. For example, the news feed for DCMS news releases is http://www.culture.gov.uk/rss/8745.xml.
The feed reader you choose will have details on how to do this.
