The big announcements have been coming fast and loose, so now it’s time for everyone at Vimeo to take a well-deserved rest.

OK, enough resting, time for another big announcement: Vimeo has arrived on your Xbox 360! You can enjoy everything you love about Vimeo while leaning back on your couch, ogling your flat-screen, and gripping the daylights out of that controller you sometimes wish could replace your right hand.

The Vimeo app on Xbox LIVE has no shortage of awesome, but here are just a few things that give it that extra special sauce:

+ Vimeo in HD on your giant TV: You know, the way you watch everything else.
+ Continuous play: Turn on your feed, your Watch Later queue, or an Album of your favorites and then wonder where three hours went. Or create a party Album to play in the background during your next shindig.
+ Voice and gesture controls with Kinect for Xbox 360: Just tell your Xbox what you want, like it’s your buddy. Maybe soon you’ll be able to control Vimeo with your MIND.*
+ Connect your Xbox LIVE account to Vimeo: See your Xbox LIVE friends’ activity and stay logged into Vimeo whenever you’re on Xbox LIVE.

You get all that, plus all the Vimeo you ALREADY love (discovering new videos, liking videos, adding videos to your Watch Later queue, following people, etc.), wrapped up in a beautiful Xbow (see what we did there?). The next version of the app will be able to pwn you at Halo 4.*

*We’re working on this!**

Great for Xbox Users. Any plans for Sony Bravia TVs?

MiguelBln: An XBox360, is not a device compared to a Sony Brania TV, if that would be the case, it would rather be Sony PlayStation first... ;-)

Hello European friends! We definitely want you to have access to the app as well. In the interest of getting this first version out as quickly as we could, we launched with only US support. Support for other countries is something we'll be working on for future releases. We would never forget about you!

What do you mean with 'support'? I grabbed the app from the US Marketplace and have no problem using it in Austria. Everything works fine, so why not offer it in Europe from the start?

I think that will be about a "Copy rights" issue, when you are an USA Citizen, you are capable of "viewing" in Australia too, because you are "USA" Citizen (depends on your first Login/Registration to VIMEO, at a USA registrated IP-Address.) If you "moved" your login too Australia, the VIMEO System stll sees you as USA.

How long is this going to take before it expands to the UK and rest of the world?

Best early Christmas present ever - thanks Vimeo!!! Now I have no reason to add yet another device (Roku, etc) just so I can partake in awesome Vimeo content away from the computer. Very exciting and have looked forward to this for a looong time.

I barely touch my XBox anymore now that I have a Roku. This probably needs an XBox Live membership, doesn't it? Meh.

What about Vimeo on Xbox webpages. Does Vimeo now work in Xbox Internet Explorer?
- previously embedded clips did not run on web pages in Xbox IE

Thanks for doing this. I tried watching some stuff on my tv via their software and got constant locks and stuttering. With xbox live, everything works great!

Really looking forward to the European version. Thanks for bringing this out.

If you create a US xbox live account, you can see the US marketplace and download it. You can then run it under your Canadian xbox live gold account (gold access is needed).

The US account I believe does not need to be a paid one, or bound to any credit card.

You're killing me. Please post something to answer the years of people asking for Vimeo on the PS3. Many thanks.

I think you will need to post your reqest to SONY support, instead of VIMEO, it's still a matter of paying contribution to the "owners - copy righted materials".

Wow, not available in Canada. The xbox is no set-top-box. And my xbox live subscription is becoming more and more irrelevant each day.
