You'll likely be able to expand storage easier than you can now by simply purchasing extra space.
But still, recorded TV is not essential nor should it be.
I think you hit the nail on the head here.
I am sure they will give you a few hours and happily charge you more every month for a couple hours more space.
I can plug any external SATA drive into my Tivo-HD to expand the space. I can also use it to DVR digital and HD OTA broadcasts...
Recorded TV is essential to my families entertainment.
As we like to say around here: Live TV is for suckers
