Showing/hiding content after a set date/time

I am teaching a conversation course this semester during which our students will watch films through links to our library's streaming services. Due to new regulations through our media center, we can only make the links to these streaming films available during two-hour periods. Is there a way in Canvas to automatically set up the link to show and then hide between certain dates? I have tried doing this through Assignments with the Available From/Until dates. It will hide the assignment content (which contains the link) before the assignment is available, but once it is made available, even after the "Available Until" date, the content does not come down unless I un-publish the assignment manually. As far as I can tell Modules don't have the "available until" function, so I can lock it until a certain time, but I still don't have the option to assign a time for it to automatically come down.


Do you know of a better way to do this, if one should exist? Thanks in advance for the help!
