To subscribe to Reuters RSS feeds, you will need a feed reader (or "news aggregator"). Feed readers allow you to subscribe to and view many feeds. By automatically retrieving updates, they can help you stay current with new stories soon after they are published.

Different feed readers are available, many for free. Some are applications that you download and install. Others are web-based and work inside your browser.

After setting up your news reader, you will be ready to use Reuters RSS.

To subscribe to Reuters feeds in your feed reader, right-click on one of the feeds and select "Copy Shortcut" or "Copy Link Location." Follow the instructions for your particular feed reader to paste this location (URL) where it asks for the URL of the feed you wish to subscribe to.

The latest versions of popular web browsers also support feeds directly. In these browsers you can simply click on the feed link to view or subscribe to it. Note: You will need a feed reader or current browser to subscribe to feeds. If you click on a feed link in an old browser, it may display unfriendly, unformatted code.
