Vimeo announced today that it’s launching an updated Apple TV app that introduces a redesigned user interface that cuts down on “the number of clicks it takes to watch a video and improves video discovery overall.” That mostly includes a redesigned menu that will give you quick access to the most popular videos as well as your Watch Later queue and your own content.
