Announcing a free headlines service from Covers.com.
RSS allows you to read through the Covers' news stories you're interested in,
at your own convenience. We've got RSS feeds for top stories, individual
sports, gaming industry headlines, and articles by Covers Experts handicappers.
What is RSS?
RSS is a way of formatting content so that it can be easily syndicated.
Headlines, article descriptions, and links are provided in an xml file that is
automatically updated whenever the headlines change. This allows you to receive
notification of new content in your own environment -- on your desktop or elsewhere.
Covers' RSS service is available, free, for personal, non-commercial use.
How do I use an RSS feed?
In order to view our RSS feeds on your computer, you will first need to acquire
a News Reader or News Aggregator. These programs pull all your selected
RSS feeds into one place -- for instance, onto your computer desktop, or into
your "My Yahoo" page.
To subscribe to an RSS feed, all you have to do is: (1) click the orange button for the feed you want, (2) copy the URL from the address bar, and (3) paste it into your RSS application. If you use My Yahoo! or My AOL, it's even easier: Just click the appropriate button to instantly add that feed.
Where can I get an RSS news reader?
There are many news readers available on the web. Some can be downloaded for
free (or for a free trial), while others charge for more features or
customizable options. When choosing your software, keep in mind that certain
readers will work better on different operating systems. A web-based reader is
a great option for beginners: There is nothing to download, and you can access
your headlines from any computer.
