or - is it possible to add a product to the Customer Registration Form?  I would like, When a new customer is registering for an account for them to have a choice between:

Registering for free or registering for a premium (paid) account. - in other words, add a subscription product via the create new user form.

I have looked at a few extensions, however non really seem to fit what I would like to achieve and I feel it may work better to subsribe at point of creating an account rather than through a seperate menu or section.

Ultimatley, the user who pays for their account would have access to more products and discounted prices.

I would appreciate any help with this and I am prepared to pay for extensions or extra programming.

Thanks in advance!

To achieve this, we can just disabled register form and guest checkout form, so the only way to register an account is via checkout page. But from a business point of view, I would never prevent potential customers from registering, I would show the low price to them anyway and stop unpaid customers from buying though.
pm me if you need an extension.

Thanks Ryan Sun _Kuafu. I understand your point which is why I was wanting to use the existing signup but offer the option of signing up free or paying for a premium membership. I want to do this without disabling the login - intead using it
