Roku expects to go public by 2014

Roku CEO Anthony Wood has noted this week that he expects his company to go public by 2014.
The company makes extremely popular set-top boxes, with a wide range of prices and features. All of the boxes include a solid lineup of 'channels' (apps) and all feature HD playback support, whether it be 720p or 1080p.

Wood was quoted as saying that he would be very "surprised" if the company had not filed an IPO in the next two years.

Says the exec: "My desire is to build a large, successful company. We get offers occasionally; so far we haven't taken any of them. Our board is right now on track to eventually become a public company. That's our plan."

There was no word on what valuation a company like Roku may IPO at.
