What Happens After I Buy 5 Computers???

Ok, so i just bought some tv shows from itunes and was informed that 5 computers can be authorized to view the files (tv shows).

I buy about one computer a year, a desktop one year, then a laptop, year by year. So in 4 years I will have 5 computers counting this one. After that will I have to re-purchase the items I bought from itunes so my sixth and so forth computers can play the shows?

You can deauthorize old computers.

So are you hoarding you new computers or are you upgrading? Because you can de-authorise computers, as you get one just de-authorise the old one.
