Soundbars are great for adding sound to your TV without having to deal with the hassle of installing a new home theater system. And fortunately, it’s pretty easy to connect them too! Let me explain how.
This is a popular connection method because it's easy to set up and works like magic. It requires only one cable to transmit both audio and visual signals between devices—so no more trying to remember which wire goes where! Basically, all modern televisions come with at least one HDMI input; if yours doesn't have one built-in, it might be possible for you to get an adapter that adds them onto your TV's rear panel.
All you have to do is to plug one end into the HDMI port on your TV and plug in the other end into an available port on your soundbar. You'll also need to make sure that both devices are turned on before doing this step. If there isn't enough power in the HDMI cable, try using an optical audio cable instead.

To connect your soundbar to your TV with an optical cable:
If neither of those options works for whatever reason, then just use this adapter instead! It connects directly to the back of each device so there are no loose ends floating around behind either product once everything is connected together correctly without any extra effort involved.
The best way to connect a soundbar to your TV is via Bluetooth. If you have a soundbar that supports Bluetooth connectivity, it’s very easy and quick to set up. All you need to do is turn on the soundbar, make sure it's in pairing mode, and then discover it on your TV using the remote control. Once discovered, select "Bluetooth" from the list of available inputs on your TV screen or menu system and pair them up with each other using codes displayed on both devices.
