How to look up on demand movie expiration dates?

How to look up on demand movie expiration dates?

I used to be able to look up the expiration dates of on demand movies streaming on tv.xfinity.com by clicking the "More info" button on a particular movie, then clicking the "Watch" button, and usually I'd get a list of options for watcing the movie. One of these options would be "On demand", and it would list the date after which the movie would no longer be able to stream. Some site update must have occured, because now, whenever I click the watch button, it starts playing the movie right away without listing the expiration date. Where in the tv.xfinity.com site have the expiration dates moved to? This helps me prioritize my watchlist and allows me to watch everything I'd like before any of it expires. I use Firefox as my browser if that's relevant to why I can no longer see expiration dates.

Thank you for your feedback. That's a good point and I'll share it with the team. We recently had an update that automatically chooses the best option to watch, rather than present the list of the various formats, etc..  You can turn this feature off in settings (looks like a gear).
