Audio Quality bit rate for Apple TV app?

Not applicable

I am a Pandora Premium subscriber. I have an Apple TV as well as a Sonos system that I play it on.

My question is, what will the audio quality, bit rate be for Apple TV versus a Sonos System, when playing Pandora Premium through the Apple TV app.

Hi there! Thanks for posting to community

Most home-listening devices get 128kbps - whether the account is free or paid. 

For listeners accessing Pandora from a computer, Ad-supported Pandora is 64kbps AAC+, while Pandora Plus and Pandora Premium subscribers have the option of 192kbps.

On Android and iOS devices, ad-supported listeners and Pandora Plus subscribers get anywhere from 24kbps to 64kbps in mono or stereo, depending on the phone, carrier, connection type and - in some cases - the user's settings. Only Pandora Premium subscribers can receive 192kbps on their iOS and Android devices.

Hope this helps.
