How can I still watch Vimeo videos on my TV?

You can continue to watch Vimeo videos on your TV by using our free iOS and Android apps or by using a supported browser. You can use these apps to cast via Apple AirPlay and Google Chromecast to your television.

Why is Vimeo ending support for the TV apps?

We strive to provide our users with a best-in-class playback and live streaming experience that’s optimized across devices, geographies, bandwidth, and network performance. Occasionally, we retire legacy products and features that are no longer consistent with our standards. We believe that our users looking to view Vimeo videos will receive a better ongoing experience by casting via our mobile app, enabling customers to enjoy Vimeo content on their TV.

Back in 2016, we launched our Apple TV, Android TV, and Roku apps to bring the best of Vimeo to your big screen. Today, Vimeo is much more than a viewing destination. It’s an all-in-one video experience platform giving creative professionals, businesses, and organizations everything they need to make and market amazing, impactful videos.
