scotsman.com does good customisable feeds - you can specify topic, no of headlines, font size and colour, etc.
There are a lot of topics to choose from.
the only thing is that the feed places a small "get live news feeds at scotsman.com logo" on the top of the news feeds.

I use moreover.com:
no logos, only a little link at the bottom of the feeds.

|is it either possible to filter the newsfeed or better still find a service which could provide some kind of aggregated newsfeeds on the exact subject i wanted. |
I've been doing some research on this myself. In my chosen topic area there are no targeted RSS data feeds. The only hope I have is subscribing to a generic source and while they offer some filtering, it's still too wide-open for my liking. So - I'm building my own RSS feed structure and working on the top organizations that produce the news I want and getting them to implement my code. I get the news feeds I want and they have the code to give to other websites interested in this particular topic area. :)
This may not apply in your situation but it's something to think about.

directory of content feeds. Pretty useful and includes some affiliate programmes.
The site classes each feed by the geographic area it covers and has them all listed by category.

there is a lot of development going on in this area. I belive that the term would be "aggregated feeds" (DO a search on google, - it might still return relevant results!) There are some programs you can use, but its only recently that it seems people have been working on feeds that can select from a set of feeds by subject or keyword. There are some ecellent resources on the web and some news services offering aggregated feeds from a set of feeds on keyword searches. Stick mail me if you want the URL's as i cant post them here.

making good progress, but found a stumbling block.
the aggregators i've found will supply news headings but not summaries as well,
i've been told this is a copyright issue, sounds plausable to me, ... any thoughts?
