Broadcast Audio Quality

I know that CD's are normally 128kbps, I was wondering what the standard of television broadcast is- thanks,

While 128 kbps is a common MP3 compressed data rate, the audio CD rate is much higher:

2 channels x 16 bits/sample * 44100 samples/second = 1,411,200
bps or 1.4 Mbps

I'm unable to answer your question on TV broadcast audio quality.

Most Boradcast TV is Analog, therefore the digital numbers don't really apply.
