Per the Britbox support page:

We support all Roku devices, except for Roku 1 (as Roku has stopped supporting this model).

So in theory your stick should be supported. However, the early Stick models (purple version) probably simply don't have the processing power. Any new Roku should be fine. I recommend paying a bit more and going with the Premiere. Too many WiFi complaints with the Express.
