RSS on your TV

The Samsung HDTVs support RSS via a feature called Infolink RSS. This places TV widgets on your screen, like news tickers, stock quotes and weather. I don't see that you can subscribe to any arbitrary RSS feeds. Anybody know more?

Sadly I think this means you can add USA Today feeds only. The Sony Reader e-ink device did that in their first version too, they had a pre-set amount of 20 or so feeds to choose from but no arbitrary feed option. I feel like you shouldn't be able to call it a feed reader if it isn't more open.

Wow, that is an interesting feature! I wonder what they will do next...
