Is It Worth Upgrading To Gen 2 VTV Box

Have just renewed contract for another 24 months at the same co$t- all good I think. 

I am thinking of asking to upgrade at no extra co$t to a Gen 2 from the Gen 1 we've had for the past year.  Should we? Is it worth it?  Anything spectacular you get with a Gen 2 over the older Gen 1 boxes?

Just Wi-fi enabled, but they run better on Ethernet cabled connection. They are the same menus and functons.

I was planning a straight swap and use the cable anyways.  I've heard you can add your own apps unlike the gen 1, is that true?

The apps available on Gen 2 are the same as on Gen 1, and there is no 'store' or any way to add your own.

I work in the Corporate/Government space for Vodafone, but I know a little bit about a lot of things we do. I volunteer my time on here.

So no real benefit then to trying to 'upgrade'?
