Sonos App for Apple TV 4
Just got the new Apple TV, and the possibility for apps are fantastic. I can see my TV moving towards a hone center. My question is, if anyone else feels the urge for a Sonos app for Apple TV? I would love one!

A beautiful designed app für #tvOS would totally make sense.
One essential piece of it would be to allow the speakers connected to the AppleTv system be selectable as an output destination.
There is no reason not to do this other than internal politics (i.e. They don't want to risk loosing Play Bar sales by allowing the speakers connected to the AppleTv to be a output destination)
That's not "internal politics", it is simple economics. Unless Sonos management has some sort of internal struggle between the "make money" and "go out of business" factions?
Great. And while they're at it, why not enable Bluesound, Denon, Samsung and LG speakers to be unofficial extensions of the Sonos system without a trace of revenue for Sonos.
For some reason the words 'commercial' and 'suicide' spring to mind...
Apple just came out with a new Apple TV that supports native applications, and an App Store very much like iPhones / iPads / iPod Touch
I don't think Sonos will ever allow a device other than a Sonos speaker or component to output audio. And I'm cool with it... because hardware is their business.
I don't think so... iOS tablets with their retina screens run at a higher resolution (2048x1536, higher for iPad Pro) than a Full HD TV (1920x1080)... so no, they shouldn't need higher resolution artwork. On a 4K TV (which Apple TV 4 doesn't support), then higher res artwork would probably be needed.
