I looked into it a bit more carefully and it seems like Basic will be fine for you, unless you plan on getting a spectro or higher-end colorimeter like a C6 (both of which require Control). You get the HT Advanced Workflow with Basic, which IMO is necessary for a full calibration (even with just 2-pt grayscale and color/tint like on your set).
"A greatly extended range of meters and pattern sources. (See the hardware support matrix.)
An expanded range of workflows
Direct Display Control access to supported panels and projectors, via direct controls and interactive charts
Autocalibration of supported displays and processors - including gamma, grayscale, and now unprecedented color gamut autocalibration as well!
The Meter Profile Editor
The Disc Player IR Editor"
none of which you need at the moment, unless you plan on getting more gear
