Question Shield TV controllers

Hi, sorry if this has been asked already but I can't find the answer anywhere.

Will the older model Sheild TV controller work on the latest Nvidea Shield TV box? I read that one is Bluetooth and one is WiFi so I'm not sure.

I want a spare controller for player 2 and for when the first 1 is on charge. The older controllers are cheaper on eBay.

Thanks

For anyone else looking for an answer to this... I've contacted Nvidia and they've confirmed the 2015 and 2017 controllers both work on the 2015 and 2017 models of the Shield TV. There are no comparability issues between the two devices/controllers.
