No release dates displayed for Movies with Contour
When I browse through all the HBO or other movies on Demand, I see 400+ movies, but the release DATE of the movie isn't shown on Contour. I used to have an older Cox DVR (Motorola DCH3416) which did display these dates.
That was very helpful. Now I just have to guess it the movie was released in 2015 or 1995! Was this intentionally dropped in Contour, or some way to get it back?
Secondly, wouldn't it be nice to filter (sort) the view by release date? I'd just like to browse through recent HBO releases, not all action or all drama etc.

Thank you for reporting this to the design/development team. One more refinement suggestion to note:
Mark, you should not have to click the "Info" button as you mentioned to view the release date. On Demand Contour (and older ROVI software) included the release date on the FIRST line of the display to the right. Why ask the user to click on "info" for each title they are browsing through, then click "C" to go back and then click down arrow to the next title? That's dumb.
When it's included with the title line, the customer can just continue down with the down-arrow button, movie to movie. That's saves 3 clicks per movie. Much better design!
Summary: Include release date in first line title info.
