Most desktop and online feed readers display feeds in an email like interface. A few change that, for instance by displaying RSS feeds in full screen or as a Desktop Ticker.
The RSS news ticker TICKR displays RSS feed headlines in a small auto-updating bar at the top of the monitor. The program can load the BBC News feed as the default feed, a custom single feed, or a feed list in OPML format. Most online and desktop feed readers support the importing and exporting of feeds in this format, which means that it should not be a problem to import an existing feed list into the news ticker.
