Is 2.4 or 5 GHz better for Apple TV?
Since a 2.4 GHz signal uses shorter waves, it can penetrate walls better than a 5 GHz signal. If your Apple TV 4 and WiFi router are separated by walls, 2.4 GHz may actually be better than 5 GHz. In most cases, Apple TV 4 will use both bands, as part of the 802.11ac wireless standard.

Airplay does “work” with the 2.4Ghz band. My Mac is on the 5Ghz band either way. Maybe it’s just the design on the apartment I’m in but 2.4Ghz is not fast enough.
How do I enable 5GHz on my Apple router?
