Vimeo has announced the latest upgrade for its Roku channel. The updated app now offers several new features and improvements, including access to the Vimeo On Demand Store and support for the Roku 4 media player.

First up, the upgraded Vimeo channel now allows users to buy and rent movies and shows directly from their creators through the Vimeo channel. The Vimeo On Demand catalog offers more than 30,000 titles available for purchase, including films like 'Bone Tomahawk,' 'THEEB,' and 'Emelie,' and Vimeo originals like 'The Outs,' 'Lonely and Horny,' 'Darby Forever,' and 'Rolodex of Hate.' Likewise, according to a recent Vimeo blog post additional new features and upgrades include:

- Unlock your account in a jiff: activation codes mean no more entering your email and password with that pesky on-screen keyboard.

- Stream at your speed: with adaptive streaming (HLS), watching videos is faster, better, and tailored to your internet connection.

- Support for Roku 4: The latest Roku media player is now supported.

The Roku 4 is powered by a Quad-Core processor and features support for 4K Ultra HD playback at up to 60 fps, 4K upscaling of HD content, and audio support for up to Dolby Digital Plus 7.1 surround sound. HDCP 2.2 compliancy is integrated as well, along with 802.11ac MIMO dual-band wireless, 10/100 Base-T Ethernet, an Optical Audio Out, a microSD slot, and a USB port. Likewise, the device includes an enhanced remote with voice search, point anywhere use, a headphone jack, motion-control for gaming, and a speaker for Remote Finder alerts. The Roku 4 is now available for a suggested retail price of $130. 

The latest version of the Vimeo channel is now available for download from the Roku channel store.
