Play your favorite tunes, podcasts, and more from your TV
When you connect your Sonos One to AirPlay 2, it will automatically show up as a speaker option in your Apple TV settings. You can then select it to stream audio from your Sonos One. Whether you're listening to Apple Music, watching YouTube videos, or streaming your favorite action sci-fi flick on Netflix, any sound piping from your Apple TV will flow through your Sonos One.

With Apple TV, you can stream music, podcasts, audiobooks, radio stations, and more. You don't have to just watch movies and TV shows. You can have Apple TV on in the living room playing your favorite podcast while listening to it in the kitchen through your Sonos One speaker.
You can also connect different AirPlay supported speakers to your Apple TV at the same time. If, for example, you have a Sonos One and two HomePods, you can use all three at the same time connected to your Apple TV.
Flexibility to go anywhere
Because the Sonos One is small (smaller than the rest of the Airplay 2-supported Sonos line), it's much easier to move it around from room to room. You can set up multiple Sonos One speakers throughout your living room for a surround-sound style experience or spread them across different rooms for a whole-house dance party.
It's the Sonos One's flexibility that makes it a worthwhile investment in your home theater system.
A sound choice
Whether you're looking for an entry-level Sonos speaker to add to your Home entertainment system or you just want a Sonos speaker for every room in your house, Sonos One is the most flexible and least expensive of the AirPlay 2-supported bunch.
The perfect TV box
Get the most out of your streaming movie and TV experience with the Apple TV 4K. Not only is it the perfect TV set-top box, but it's also a gaming device, music and audiobook player, podcast streamer, and more.
For a little bit more, you can invest in two Sonos One speakers and give your TV watching experience a nice stereo sound. Put one on each side and you'll get equal sound from anywhere in the room.
True surround sound
If you really want to bring full, rich, surround sound to your movies and TV shows, a solid setup includes two Sonos One speakers and a Sonos Beam.
The Playbar is Sonos' top-of-the-line sound bar for your TV. Take it to the next level by adding the Sonos Sub and you're never going to leave the house to watch a movie again.
