Replacing an older Roku 2 with Roku Express +

I have an older Roku 2 purchased in 2015 connected to a standard def TV using composite cables.  It still works but it is on the slow side processing requests, even though I have a super fast internet connection.  I would like to be able to watch Hulu or Youtube TV, which I have problems with now.  If I purchased the Roku Express + (2018), would I see an improvement in performance and be able to watch additional channels?  While, it's only $30, I wondered if it's worth the effort.  Thanks.

Thanks for the inquiry.

Yes, a Roku Express device will allow you view more content as channel providers support the newer devices as their channel may no longer support older devices such as your Roku 2.
