Sourcetree won't let me register with my github account


I just installed Sourcetree on my mac. It's taking me through the registration process. The screen looks like this:

It says: "You can also connect Sourcetree to other services like Github, Gitlab, and Azure DevOps later."

But I don't see any option to do so on this page and the continue button is disabled.

Do I HAVE to pick/create a Bitbucket account in order to continue? What's the point of doing that if I'm just going to use my github account afterwards?

Yes you do need to have a Bitbucket account to use Sourcetree. We simply ask for this as a way to gauge usage of Sourcetree in return for the free product.
