I just became aware of the fact a low percentage of registered users are clubmembers. The $15 membership goes such a long way to improve the server, etc, and enhance your exprience greatly. Yet so many of you register, post and dont join for the nominal fee.

As another poster said, If you're looking for reliable information about DTV or sat tv generally, where else would you eventually wind up? When you experience a problem with DTV subscription you go here before you call DTV. Not to diss the CSRs at DTV, but most of the folk who post here know SO much more about what's going on than the typical CSR at DTV does.

The Mods understandably wont push the issue. Perhaps I can. For the price of a few lattes, make this site better.

Or tell me why you havent?

As a matter of fact, I tried to join this morning. The page said I could use "Paypal" or plastic. No choice for plastic I could find and I don't want to use Paypal. Please advise. Thanks.

Here's a couple of guesses...

1. A lot of people come here trying to figure out how to get as much as they can from D at low/no cost. The same line of thinking is going to apply to DBSTalk. They can get it for free....they're not going to pay.

2. It has been a bit since I joined, but availability of a membership and it's benefits were not "obviously" presented. I think I figured out there was a membership from the "DBS Club Member" under someone's avatar and went looking for it.

No one has to justify to anyone on why they are, or are not a member of DBSTalk Club.
