Our first town hall on Vimeo was a pivotal moment that allowed us to reach more associates than we ever could through live, in-person events.

Peter Strella,

Director of Communications & Creative Media Services

We launched a bi-weekly live show on Vimeo during the pandemic. We managed the whole process on the Vimeo platform, collaborating remotely with our team and agency, and going live multiple times a week, in several languages.

Alvin Mudun,

Senior Web Product Manager, Zendesk

We use Vimeo to conduct classroom instruction and theory directly into the auto shops we serve, so learners don’t have to travel to us for recertification. Last year, we served 8,000 to 9,000 people.

Steve Hamaday,

With Vimeo Live classes, we can reach consumers anywhere. We already have subscribers across 5 different continents, and the numbers grow every day.

Are there really no streaming limits?

Subject to our Bandwidth Fair Use Policy, Vimeo Premium users get unlimited live streaming in the Vimeo player to any number of viewers, across as many events as you'd like, with each event limited to 12 hours. No overages. No hidden fees. If you are looking to broadcast multiple concurrent streams, Vimeo Enterprise is the plan for you.

Which live streaming plan is right for me?

Vimeo’s Premium and Enterprise plans allow you to scale up your live streaming program as needed. If you’re looking to stream multiple live events, or stream to social media channels, Vimeo Premium will be a great fit. If you’re looking for additional security features like SSO, backup streams, and 24/7 dedicated support, check out Vimeo Enterprise.

Can I cancel anytime?

Yes, all our self-serve plans are risk-free. You’ll get a full refund if you decide to cancel anytime within the first 30 days of an annual membership, or within the first five days of a monthly membership. If you no longer need the added benefits of your current membership, you can downgrade to another tier.
