There are four types of Membership available to best meet your needs
For global organisations with an interest in the UK's world-leading digital terrestrial television market however not currently active in the UK market.
If your organisation has active involvement or interest in digital television, Full Membership is the best option.
The benefits are as with Full Membership but aimed at new organisations in their first or second year of operation (subject to criteria set in the Terms and Conditions of Membership). After that period New Entrant Members are automatically upgraded to Full Membership.
Affiliate Membership is offered to UK and international not-for-profit organisations such as trade associations, registered charities, special interest groups and central government departments that have an interest in the work of the DTG. We strive to maintain regular contact with Affiliate Members through events, email bulletins and stakeholder engagement. Representatives of Affiliate Members may attend DTG meetings by invitation.
Full Membership costs £12,750 per annum. Members have access to the Freeview technical specifications (the D-Book) and all outputs from DTG meetings and Working Groups including the DTG UK UHD Forum, plus a host of other supporting benefits.
Joining the DTG is easy and our membership team will help you every step of the way. The application process consists of two forms which need to be signed and returned to [email protected], along with payment. On receiving your application, DTG Council has seven working days to approve your membership, after which our membership team will send you all the information needed to start taking full advantage of being part of the DTG. If you need more information on this please contact the membership team at [email protected].
Your DTG membership will automatically be renewed after a year. If your organisation wishes either to change membership category or to terminate membership, you can contact the membership team once you have received your renewal invoice or at any point during the year. Any changes will take effect once the renewal invoice has been paid.
DTG membership fees are payable annually. You will receive your first invoice with the confirmation of your DTG membership. Existing members are invoiced approximately six weeks before their renewal date, which is the date the DTG received your first membership payment.
New DTG Members only gain access to all their member benefits once the first invoice has been paid. Existing members with an overdue payment will be given payment reminders. Within a reasonable time frame access to the member zone will be revoked until payment has been received.
Mergers between members and non-members or other members are handled on a case-by-case basis. Please inform the DTG membership team about any changes in your organisation and we will let you know of the steps necessary without having an effect on your membership. If you need more information on this please contact the membership team at [email protected].
You will not need to reapply, however please inform the DTG membership team about the changes to your organisation. The DTG membership team will update both their records as well as the website with the new name and branding for your organisation to ensure that all records are accurate.
Please contact the DTG Membership team about any changes you would like to make to your membership category. We will try our best to accommodate any changes as quickly and easily as possible. If you need more information on this please contact the membership team at [email protected].
