The ability to operate the Sonos surround sound speaker system wirelessly is one of its main advantages. You won’t have to connect each speaker to the next to create a technological masterpiece in your media room. Instead, you can use your Sonos App to connect the speakers through Wi-Fi and manage them.

However, a wired arrangement is frequently used to connect the main Sonos speaker. But don’t be alarmed. You may still connect your Sonos to your TV wirelessly so that there are no tangled, jumbled wires ruining the wonderful aesthetic of your home theater that you worked so hard to establish.

You have a few alternatives for wirelessly connecting your Sonos to your TV. You can use the Sonos App to connect the system but plug in the main soundbar or use an APTX BT transmitter as an audio receiver that plugs into the TV without requiring a cable connection to your speakers.

Let’s take a closer look at How to Connect Sonos to TV Wirelessly

  1. Use Bluetooth to connect the Sonos Speaker to the TV.

If you want to use Bluetooth to link your Sonos speaker to your TV, make sure that both the speaker and the TV are Bluetooth compatible. While this may seem obvious to some, even the most seasoned audiophile can make this mistake.

You’ll need to use your TV’s streaming service and connect to the Sonos speaker as a Bluetooth device to connect the speaker to the TV through Bluetooth. If you use Hulu, for example, you may go to the Settings section and select this speaker while the Sonos Bluetooth-enabled speakers are powered on and ready to connect.

The TV and Sonos speakers will then pair wirelessly using the Bluetooth connection provided by the streaming service and the speaker. However, keep in mind that not all speakers are Bluetooth compatible, as the Sonos speaker system was designed to link your home’s surround sound speaker system via Wi-Fi.

If you buy a Sonos Bluetooth-enabled speaker, though, this alternative becomes much easier. With the touch of a button on your speakers, you can effortlessly turn on Bluetooth, and then pair the device with your television.

If you plan to stream movies or TV episodes on your TV, keep in mind that the speakers must be of good quality.

Some speakers, like some Sonos models, are designed for TV music streaming but not for movie watching because of the Wi-Fi connection they use. So, read evaluations of different speakers to figure out which ones are better for movies and which ones are better for music.

  1. Use the Sonos App

The fact that the Sonos surround sound speaker system comes with an App and can be managed remotely from your Wi-Fi connected phone or computer is one of the most appealing features.

This is especially convenient because you can control each speaker from your sofa cushion. You can tweak your speakers from your phone instead of manually adjusting them. This is possible because each Sonos speaker in your surround sound system is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your phone or computer (whichever you plan to use as the controller). You may then modify the sound using the Sonos App on the controller to create the audio experience of your dreams.

To do so, you’ll almost certainly need to connect at least one of the speakers to your TV through a wired connection. This method is still appealing to many people because it simply requires one cable to connect the full system of speakers rather than a maze of connections. Connect each of your Sonos speakers to the Wi-Fi system that is associated with your Wi-Fi-enabled phone or computer using the Sonos App. You’ll then connect each of these speakers to the centralized soundbar once you’ve established a connection with them.

Depending on the model you choose, the soundbar will most likely be linked to the TV through an audio input/output connection. Again, you’ll use a wired connection for your primary speaker, but the rest of your Sonos speakers will be connected through an app, allowing you to retain a somewhat wireless connection. Depending on the soundbar you purchase, you may be able to connect it wirelessly to your TV as well.

  1. Assign an APTX BT Transmitter to the role of Audio Receiver.

Another alternative for wirelessly connecting your Sonos speakers to your TV is to use a connecting device that allows your speakers to communicate with your TV using Bluetooth. Again, this assumes that your Sonos speaker is Bluetooth-enabled, so double-check before attempting to use this feature.

In effect, this add-on turns your TV into a Bluetooth-enabled device, regardless of whether or not your streaming provider allows it. Fortunately, APTX BT transmitters are not prohibitively expensive and easy to operate.

As an audio receiver, the APTX BT transmitter plugs into the TV and eliminates the need for a wired connection to your speakers. Instead of plugging in your speakers, you’ll connect them to this transmitter via Bluetooth.

You’ll need to enable Bluetooth on both the Sonos speaker and the APTX BT transmitter to accomplish this. The transmitter will then be plugged into the proper audio input/output jacks. Your transmitter’s input/output receivers may differ, but they should be quite clear. If your TV does not have a dedicated audio output connector, you can use the headphone jack to achieve the same result.

You’ll simply have to wait until the two devices (the transmitter and the speakers) are associated with one another now that your transmitter is plugged into your TV and your Sonos speakers are enabled via Wi-Fi. When you’re done using the speakers with your TV, simply unplug the transmitter, and the two devices will no longer be associated.


If you’re just getting started with your Sonos surround sound speaker system, don’t stress. How to Connect Sonos to TV Wirelessly can always be found online or in your handbook. Then you can start listening to your favorite songs.
