On RSS Feeds
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML-based format for distributing and aggregating Web content (such as news headlines).
Using RSS, Web content providers can easily create and disseminate feeds of data that include, for example, news links, headlines, and summaries.
Unifeed provides a feed of the last 12 news videos produced.
How do I consume an RSS feed ?
There are several ways to access RSS feeds. You can install news-reader (RSS reader) software to collect headlines from RSS Feeds you select, allowing you to view a variety of headlines from the Web.
After installing the news reader, you can add each feed manually from our site by clicking on the link or RSS button (example button) next to the feed.
If you would prefer not to download software, you can use a web-based RSS Feed reader, of your choice.
This RSS feed is a free service offered by UNifeed for broadcasters. Any other uses or modifications of the content are strictly prohibited.
