Feedly Responds to JSON Feed Questions
Question: will Feedly be supporting JSON feed anytime soon?
@joshlewis by the way are there any sites which don’t support RSS and support only JSON feed?— Feedly (@feedly) May 26, 2017

I think these are shameful tweets. Asking about JSON feed support is a fair question and doesn’t deserve such a dismissive non-response.
Feedbin, on the other hand, does support JSON feed. Ben Ubois, on the Feedbin company blog:
One of the criticisms I’ve seen of JSON Feed is that there’s no incentive for feed readers to support JSON Feed. This is not true. One of the largest-by-volume support questions I get is along the lines of “Why does this random feed not work?” And, 95% of the time, it’s because the feed is broken in some subtle way. JSON Feed will help alleviate these problems, because it’s easier to get right.
