Yes. Any sound bars that has an optical audio input will be able to work on any HDTV. I would recommend you demo them at your local retail store and let your own ears be the final judge. Not all sound bars can produce sound cleanly and cleary. I would recommend a brand that only makes speakers. Hope this will help you out.

Maybe, it depends on the specific model of Samsung that you have. Samsung makes several models that have no auxiliary audio output connection at all, so no way to connect a sound bar. - - - - - Followup per those other answers. Saying that "absolutely" or "any" TV can connect to a sound bar is simply wrong. I cited the problem with certain Samsung models above--I've seen those in person and there are *no* connections for external audio on them, not even a headphone jack. You *might* be able to connect a modern Samsung to a sound bar if (a) the TV supports ARC--audio return via the HDMI port, used mainly with home theater systems, plus (b) your sound bar has an HDMI input. But if you don't have a TV like that, especially if it's one from several years ago that had no HDMI input, then it isn't going to work, period. As an alternative, are you using any type of cable or satellite receiver or PVR? If yes, it will likely have one or more auxiliary audio outputs that you can connect to an external amplifier-speaker system, like a sound bar.

You can get a Smart TV to play TV services from the UK & US if you are abroad by configuring a VPN connection in the menu settings of the TV. quite easy to do and once you have this running you can watch HULU & BBC iPlayer from anywhere on it.
