Lifehacker has a post about a very cool service for Windows Media Centre users. The Media Centre RSS Reader is a plugin for Windows Media Centre which brings RSS to your TV screen. Wow! Now if that doesn’t do a lot to make feeds more accessible to Joe and Thembi at home then I don’t know what does.
The software will run on Windows Media Centre edition and Vista. There are some issues with the plugin though. It apparently strips out images so you are going to be left with text feeds. I am also not sure if it supports audio/video enclosures so podcasts may be out too.
If you are in the market for podcasts on your TV then perhaps you should consider the Apple TV?
