About RSS and news feeds
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is an easy and free way to get the news you want whenever it is updated, even if you are not on the msnbc.com Web site. Want up-to-the-minute headlines, the hottest celebrity gossip or the latest video from the "Today" show? You choose what you want to track and how often you want to be updated.
To use RSS, you'll need to use a news reader — a program that provides a real-time interface to the feeds you select. News readers come in all sizes and shapes. Many are Web-based; some send headlines to your e-mail or cell phone. Two examples are Windows Live and Bloglines, but msnbc.com's RSS feeds should work with any reader using the standard XML-based format.
Ready to get started?
Pick a feed by scrolling down and browsing the links on this page and the next, or choose one of the links at the top of this page to narrow down your options. If your news reader is one of the four we offer one-click access to, simply click on the appropriate icon and you're done!
If you don't see the name of your service, right-click on the orange "XML" button and select "copy shortcut" or "copy link location." (Using a Mac? Click and hold or control-click instead of right-clicking.) Go to your news reader of choice, paste the link into the relevant spot and you're set.
Msnbc.com feeds in the RSS format are provided free of charge for use by individuals for personal, non-commercial uses.
