Vimeo releases six films for pay-to-view service preview

Vimeo’s pay-to-view service will give video creators the ability to charge for access to their films.  Shara Tibken at Cnet reports that the service will open to all Vimeo Pro users early in 2013, but for now we can preview it with films that range from $4.99 to $9.

I personally was dying to see Beauty Is Embarrassing (A documentary about Wayne White, one of the creators of Pee-wee’s Playhouse) which ended up being one of the launch films.  It was an elegant experience with payment handled all from the movies main page, no need to spiral down endless other pages eventually making your way back to the movie.  I had no issues streaming, the quality was great, and with a 7 day window I had more than enough time to enjoy the movie.
