Vimeo's new on demand video library is now available.
Vimeo has officially launched its new global video store in partnership with Lionsgate. The service is available in more than 150 countries around the world. In addition to Lionsgate TV series, the platform will also soon add content from Starz.
"As audiences across the globe continue to shift towards online viewing, Vimeo is taking a leadership role, establishing our On Demand storefront as the world's first transactional service to offer premium television on a truly global basis" said Sam Toles, Senior Vice President, Programming. "We're truly excited to be partnering with Lionsgate and now Starz to offer their content and today's launch marks a huge expansion for our offering of premium programming."
The new Vimeo On Demand store offers nearly all of Lionsgate's library of TV titles, including current and catalog shows like 'Orange is the New Black,' 'Casual,' 'The Royals,' 'Mad Men,' 'Weeds,' 'Nurse Jackie,' 'Boss,' 'Blue Mountain State,' and 'Manhattan.' In addition, Starz is set to bring shows like its limited series 'The Girlfriend Experience,' horror-comedy 'Ash vs Evil Dead,' and drama 'Black Sails' to the digital store in the coming weeks.
"Vimeo is undoubtedly one of the most cutting-edge online video platforms and Starz is very pleased to join Lionsgate in agreeing to provide content to Vimeo’s storefront. With this agreement, Starz will make available for purchase three of its most powerful and compelling STARZ Original series for consumers around the world," said Jeffrey Hirsch, Chief Operating Officer at Starz.
Vimeo's new digital TV store is now live. Customers have the option to purchase shows in full seasons or as individual episodes.
