Thumbs Up  RE: Full Features RSS News Reader Addon
Post: #2
I try it the other night, it is fantastic , I was always wonder what is the point to the original news ticker at the bottom of the home screen for if I can't click/read the news.
NOW with this Addon, I can actually READ the news, just to let others know , this Addon share the same sources as the original news ticker that come with XBMC, just edit the RssFeeds.xml , so it is convenience.
