Greetings
I have a few questions before I decide whether to buy your speakers.
I plan on buying the SONOS ONE speakers and I have APPLE TV 4K
There are several apps within APPLE TV like Netflix and a few other apps that I watch through the news and sports and channels that broadcast live.
My question is, can I hear the voice in the applications of these broadcasts through your speakers? And in what way is this done?
Or can you only hear through APPLE MUSIC?

Thank you

Hi neda7777

The Sonos One will support all your audio needs but there is caveat...you can't connect a Sonos One directly to a TV or any other source. To hear the audio from a TV you would first need a Playbar, Playbase or Beam connected to it. Then you could Group a Sonos One to one of the speakers mentioned to hear the same audio.

Now...that being said using a Sonos One in the manner described may introduce a lag between it and the Playbar, Playbase or Beam. Bottom-line its not a practical solution...although it is possible.

You can play Apple Music DIRECT to a Sonos One or any Sonos speaker via the Sonos Controller (App) on your iOS or Android device; as well as the PC based Sonos Controller.

Note: You must use an iOS or Android device to setup Sonos. For all practical purposes the PC based Sonos Controller is just another way to listen to your music or setup a network share. https://support.sonos.com/s/article/257

Hello neda7777,
I had two add my two cents since I just bought Sonos One last week. I have a 4 year-old Samsung Smart TV and an Apple TV, the one before 4K. I was able to set up 2 Sonos One speakers with my Apple TV by going into settings and then Video and Audio. I am able to use my Sonos One with my Hulu and Showtime apps on Apple TV. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work with the Sling app. I haven’t tried YouTube yet. I also have very fast internet. I have had no lag or any problems with the speakers. They work great! All I used was 2 Sonos One and set them up as a pair! Good luck to you.
