I'm building a TV display that will sit in a waiting room. It is essentially a web browser that runs through a series of web pages. We have some original content, but I'm looking to keep things interesting and fresh by adding some current news content, maybe the weather, etc.

Is there a website or web service that offers full-screen, large-text news headlines, weather forecasts, and other content that could be added to a TV display like this?

  • Might help if described more about your development environment? Like: Java Servlets with Portlets. Jun 7, 2016 at 7:24
  • Would a dashboard like freeboard.io or even Node-RED suit you? They are aimed for Internet of Things applications, but should fit well in a TV display. You need to do some (simple) coding thought to implement your features, but Node-RED has many weather/rss plugins.

I would look at using a Raspberry Pi and Screenly OSE.

You have control over it via "the cloud", you can post the content, content can include web pages, still images, and movies.


RSS Feed Readers

The following RSS Feed Readers take a series of RSS Feeds, and format them on a web page that looks great on a TV display.
