Mobile news feeds

News feeds can help you keep up to date with the BBC News and Sport topics you are most interested in.

Mobile-friendly feeds are available to use on your device and are great for people who want to keep across many topics at once.

What are news feeds?

In their simplest form, news feeds are lists of headlines from the BBC News website enclosed in a machine-readable format called RSS.

There is some discussion as to what RSS stands for, but most people plump for 'Really Simple Syndication'.

How can I use the feeds?

Some mobile phones come pre-loaded with applications which will "read" feeds for you, but in many cases you will need to download and install something on your phone.

Possibly the easiest way to find an application for your phone is to search the internet for the term "RSS feed reader" and your phone or device type.

For example, if your had a Sony Ericsson or a Nokia you would search for "RSS feed reader Sony Ericsson" and "RSS feed reader Nokia" respectively.

What will this cost me?

The BBC doesn't charge for access to news feeds and you are free to use them for personal and non-commercial purposes.

If you are using the feeds on your non-commercial mobile site we do require that the proper format and attribution is used when BBC News content appears. The attribution text should read "BBC News" or "" as appropriate. You may not use any BBC logo or other BBC trademark.

We reserve the right to prevent the distribution of BBC News content and the BBC does not accept any liability for its feeds.

Your mobile network may charge you for any data you download, so check your tariff or PAYG terms.
