The latter.

HD has been in the US for a good few years now.

I don't think so.

The original HD stream on HBO probably equated to (10-15GB) an episode (I think?), so I'm guessing 2 eps a disc. 4 discs would be my guess

Those sizes will be for MPEG-2 I guess.

My money would be on the series being on the same number of discs as the DVD, considering they are now reaching DVD-equivalent bitrates with VC-1.
