• Redesigned Apple TV App With Improved Features Announced By Vimeo

    Vimeo recently announced that an update to the Apple TV app will launch with a redesigned user interface. Apparently, the company cut down on “the number of clicks it takes to watch a video and improves video discovery overall,” and the most popular videos can be accessed quickly due to the redesigned menu. The menu will also allow quick access to the users’ content and Watch Later queue. Nick Alt, VP of Mobile and TV stated,

    as the Vimeo On Demand collection continues to build (currently 10K titles and growing daily), it’s more important than ever to provide our viewers with a seamless living room experience. Our ‘Watch Later’ feature makes videos found on Vimeo immediately accessible across all connected devices, and with this latest AppleTV update we’re making content even more discoverable.
    The new app will include a slew of new features; 20 Vimeo chosen curated channels, a newly designed Video Detail page, and a revamped Featured Home page that highlights user channels and albums. Upcoming featured series and films will be in a VOD Trailers section as well in the updated app:

    Starting now, browse thousands of Vimeo On Demand trailers from the unrelenting comfort of your couch. When you find a title that grabs your interest, add it to your Watch Later queue and purchase it when you’re ready. Any titles you’ve purchased will appear in Watch Later and under My Videos.
    Last but not least, the company talked about “hidden” features in the app:

    Enjoy continuous playback anywhere — simply press the play button on your remote while any video thumbnail is selected. Also: Quickly like or add a video to your Watch Later queue by holding down the center (select) button on your remote. Super stealth… Before that next professional kicking game begins, log in to Vimeo on Apple TV to speedily discover and watch amazing videos, films, and series. GOOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLL!
    Apple TV users will be able to take advantage of this newly designed and updated app today.
