OK, so the first thing to do is to download an Add-on that will enable us to edit the RSS feed, strangely enough it’s called “RSS Editor” and we can find it in the Kodi Add-on Repository on our device. Go to Add-ons and Install from Repository, select the Kodi Add-on Repository and then select Program Add-ons.
Now Scroll down and select the RSS Editor
Now install the Add-on
Once that is complete, come out of this and go to System / Appearance.
With Skin highlighted move over and scroll down to Edit as shown below. By the way make sure that Show RSS news feed is turned on !
When you select edit it will automatically open up the RSS Editor Add-on that we just installed.
You will see that we can have three news feeds but unfortunately they are all in use. To fix this we have to overwrite one of the existing news feeds.
If you just click on the feed to overwrite the keyboard screen appears and we can simply delete the existing news feed and put in our own.
When you have entered the URL a number keyboard pops up. This is for you to select the time, in minutes, that the news feed will update, 30 minutes is the default and I just left mine at that and clicked OK.
Once complete, click done and you will see it is now shown.
If you like you can also delete the other news feeds.
Now once this is done, you must re-start kodi for the change to take full effect.
Below, you can see I now have the Yahoo news feed.
Have a play with this, remember you can enter up to three RSS feeds so why not choose a couple more?
Here I have added BBC UK News and Sky News.
