Vimeo, the video streaming service for artistes, is getting a crass, commercial sibling. Until today the service has not allowed commercial use. While anyone can post a video online for free, and "Plus" members, for $60 a year, can get additional features like an ad-free player for their videos, the clean and high-quality service has not had a potentially lucrative business-focused subscription service.
Today that changes, with Vimeo Pro. The standout feature of the Pro-level package is its low price: $199 a year. That gets users 50GB of storage, and 250,000 video plays per year. On the Pro accounts, Vimeo doesn't track bandwidth.
