You need a news feed aggregator to read RSS news.

With an OPML file you can import feeds to your news feed aggregator.

BEWARE : bloatware / program crash

.... bloating ....

There are hundreds of RSS feed addresses in the OPML file.

Therefore you should install another (RSS) news reader than your favourite news reader / aggregator.

Test the OPML file in the other news reader / aggregator.

It is better to load OPML file first to a different RSS client.

Then it is easier to remove unnecessary feeds and load only wanted RSS feeds to the main RSS client.

IF your current program is a bloatware, it may not handle well hundreds of feeds.
