ROKU players that will stream Sling TV

The Sling TV site says they will stream on ROKU LT and newer players but they can't answer specific players. I can't find info on the release dates of ROKU players.
Will Sling TV play on the ROKU 2 - 4210X ?? Is this newer than the LT ?.  What about operating systems? Why is this so hard? It was easy with directvnow and they will play on the 4210X but they are too expensive after trial period. $45 per month with no Travel channel unless you pay more.

Here's a list of release dates. There's three versions of the LT, one released in 2011, 2012 and 2013. All are pretty old. The 4210 is a couple of years newer (2015) than the newest LT and has a much more powerful CPU. You can ignore the ending letter on the model number. It only indicates what retail channel is was sold on.

Adding to what Dan said, the Roku 2 model 4210 will play Sling TV. That device is the same as a Roku 2 (model 4200). The difference is simply the remote that was included in the box. The Roku 2 model 4210 will handle just about anything, despite the age of the device.
