Video streaming and advanced advertising specialist Roku is in talks to raise at least $200 million in a new round of funding at a valuation of about $1.5 billion, Fortune reported, citing sources familiar with the situation.
Fortune said Roku received a term sheet this week and that the round will be led by U.S.-based investors not named but cited a source indicating that they won’t be “standard Silicon Valley firms.”
Roku declined to comment on the report.
Roku has already raised about $210 million, according to CrunchBase. Its investors include Fidelity, 21st Century Fox, Netflix, Menlo Ventures, Hearst, Sky and Viacom, among others.
