Buzzfeed editor Jon Paczkowski received a message from Apple confirming the move and tweeted the news: Apple_Sonos_Bussfeed Paczkowski Apple Music on Sonos tweet Sonos confirmed this to The Verge.

Shame they can't be bothered getting BBC radio working properly again. Live streams have been the crappy low bit rate mp3 ones (with no sport) and iplayer has been completely dead since feb. As usual sonos are too cool to bother telling anyone when they might bother to fix it.
Oh well, at least it was cheap....oh wait
Er, what iplayer is that? People on the Sonos forums have been asking for iPlayer for years, to no avail.
Agreed though that Sonos need to sort out live BBC radio, it's been broken for months with no indication of when they will support the HLS streams. Naim have just announced a fix for their system, now Sonos need to catch up. There are a lot of unhappy listeners on their forum:
It used to work through tunein. It WAS wildly unreliable and the search didn't really work but it was there. The BBC in their infinite wisdom decided to wrap those in hls as well so they don't work at all now. By the sounds of it they are going to move to dash soon anyway and all this can start again.
Apple is not selling you ALL of the music, just a few percent, the rest is omitted. The album you bought in CD form had 400MB of data, the Apple file has around 80MB at most. That's a bargain only for the tin-eared prole. MP3s weren't good enough for Steve Jobs, he had a great vinyl system. He never told customers that, did he?
Take the audio out of an Apple Airport Express (or any AirPlay supported device) and connect to the line-in on a Sonos Connect or Sonos Amp. Voila!
I believe this article should more accurately indicate that Sonos will natively support Apple Music in its app by the end of the year.
