I haven't fully-researched it yet but what you would lose is an online TV Guide. You would have to set date and time to record and date/time to stop recording instead of TV Guide "point-and-clicking". Most-importantly: in the brand, TiVo's, the unit stops operating completely without the subscription service. The recording quality notwithstanding, you turn a top end DVR into a regular VCR which you probably already own by not purchasing the subscription service.

Do you lose your games if your PlayStation plus account expires?

If the game was offered for free as a PlayStation Plus subscription bonus, then yes, you will lose the ability to play it once your subscription ends. You will keep any game you purchased with a Plus account discount, those are fine, as are, of course, any other games you've downloaded from the PSN. However even after you run out and don't renew, when you become a Plus sub again you will be able to play all the Plus games you downloaded. So unless you never re-sub to Plus you will never permanently lose the abilty to play them.
