PlayOn (Desktop) Enhancement Suggestion file format: "netflixmovietitle (YYYY).mp4"

First, praise! I've been a long time user and I have loved how the desktop software has evolved and functioned.

This particular suggestion is for the nextflix app.
Currently, when recording movies from netflix the file name is:

"movie title.mp4"

Would it be possible to have the year of the movie added to the file name automatically? Like:

"movie title (YYYY).mp4"

"American Sniper (2014).mp4"
"And So It Goes (2014).mp4"
"Ex Machina (2014).mp4"

No offence to your implementation, but almost all media centers use the above format for identifying fanart, ratings, etc, ... and there will be zero post processing of file names after PlayOn.
Plus, this will help out in situations involving movie remakes too such as:

Journey to the Center of the Earth (2008)
Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959)

Thanks for your consideration!
