RSS FEEDS DESCRIPTION
RSS, short for Really Simple Syndication, is a data format that provides publishers with a new way of distributing content. Subscribe to a feed and constantly updated Tomatometer™ and Certified Fresh™ ratings along with the Critical Consensus will be automatically collected by the reader of your choice. Each feed provides headlines for a different compilation of new and upcoming movies and videos/dvd. You choose which feeds you would like to display by adding them to your reader/service (see below for further details).
To view an RSS feed, you will need access to a reader (or aggregator) that allows the collection and display of RSS content (see table at right). RSS readers can be installed as standalone applications on your computer; alternatively, feeds can be collected and accessed thru a web-based service such as Bloglines. Many readers are available free of charge.

After setting up your RSS reader, you will be ready to use one of Rotten Tomatoes' feeds. To subscribe, right-click on the link associated with an RSS feed (identified by an orange button like this: ) and select "Copy Shortcut" or "Copy Link Location" to copy the location (URL) of the service. Follow the instructions for your particular news reader and paste this text wherever the location of the service you've signed up for is requested.
