Purchased streaming video from Vimeo won't play on Roku Streaming Stick

A Vimeo Purchased streaming video appears in my Vimeo acct in Roku, but Watch button is not active and no player window opens. I am able to play other Vimeo videos in Roku, and this video plays fine on my Win 10 pc. I have tried using Watch Later and Like features while playing on the pc, but the video does not appear in either the LIke or the Watch Later lists in Vimeo on Roku.  I have good wifi and net connections, good speed, etc. as indicated in Roku.  I have tried logging out and back in to Vimeo acct on Roku, and reactivating Viimeo, but no success. I have submitted help request to Vimeo, but no reply and no email from them with a ticket number.  Thanks for any help.

Thanks for the inquiry.

For more information about that channel's features and functionality, you'll want to contact Vimeo support directly to inquire further. Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves.
