The FT Headline Licence allows you to build customisable news feeds so you can integrate relevant FT content into the applications of your choice. So your readers get important updates and insight from the FT, when they need it and how they want it.
Users benefit from:
More relevant content as users have the ability to define what makes an article relevant and create many customised lists of headlines. This allows for better targeting and personalisation.
Quicker, more convenient access to FT content within your existing workflow solutions.
Greater flexibility and increased control as data feeds can be updated in real time on a self service basis.
The Headline Licence allows you to search for and retrieve headlines and teaser text, with links to full articles on FT.com. Using the Headline Licence, you can:
Curate feeds for client newsletters or emails,
Deliver automatic, real-time updates to users on terminals or via web / mobile services,
Integrate news content into CRM systems and intranets, and
Fully customise news delivery to meet user workflows and requirements.
The Headline service has a royalty free plan available to all FT Developer Programme members. A member can enter into a Headline licence agreement with the FT and receive an API key. You can use the FT Search APIs to return headlines, teaser text (first 140 characters of the article) and URL of the original article via your own website or application.
