Yes, by a whole $5 per year.  That's one (or less than one?) Starbucks 
coffee per year.

Well, as someone who isn't using Schedules Direct, *you* are in a 
position to actually do something about the decreasing membership that 
*I*, as a member of Schedules Direct, can't do.

And, if all the people (who probably don't participate on this list) who 
are stealing TMS data with mc2xml would stop stealing their listings and 
pay their share for the data they're using, we probably wouldn't have 
problems with SD membership...  You know, the same mc2xml that steals 
TMS data--but whose website actually tells people to stay away from Orb 
software because "The Orb software company has a history of stealing and 
embedding/hiding mc2xml.exe (renamed to xmltvgrabber.exe) in their 
software bundle and claiming it as their own work. Avoid this company." 
and whose website that asks people to donate money to the author of the 
program that allows them to steal the listings data...  If those people 
would instead donate their money to Schedules Direct...
