How to use RSS feeds?

RSS is built right into both the newest versions of Internet Explorer (7.0) and Mozilla Firefox—simply click on the big orange RSS button at the top right of the CTC Media Centre website. Select the news category you want—CTC News, CTC Story Ideas, CTC Media Releases and news from our Industry Forum. Next, copy the URL from the address bar and paste it in the appropriate field.

(If you’re using an older browser, you’ll need to download an RSS Reader or an RSS web module. A variety of RSS Readers are available for different platforms. Some popular feed readers include Amphetadesk (Windows, Linux, Mac), FeedReader (Windows) and NewsGator (Windows—integrates with Outlook).) There are also a number of web-based RSS feed-readers available. My Yahoo, Bloglines and Google Reader are the most popular. It just takes a minute to set this up. Perhaps the easiest way is to upgrade your browser to IE 7.

If you want the news on your mobile device, NewsGator has RSS reader software that will work in Blackberry & Windows Mobile devices.

If you already have a reader such as Google RSS Reader set up, the headlines will be delivered there as soon as we post the next news report on the CTC Media Centre website.
