Can't download ESPN on my Dads Roku

I got my Dad a subscription to espn+ for fathers day. We tried downloading it to his roku, which is an older generation,  and we kept getting an error stating that the espn app is "not supported on this device". I have the latest roku and it works great on mine. Does the espn app only work on more recent iterations of roku devices? Or should it work for all devices? Any help would be appreciated.

If it's a previous generation then it most likely can't run ESPN and many other channels.  Since Father's Day has happened yet, you may want to add a new Roku to the gift.  :-)
