How Do Wireless Speakers Connect to a TV?

Many TVs come with built-in speakers that leave much to be desired in terms of sound. And wired speakers can often be bulky and take up a lot of room. Plus, it could take hours to set up the speakers correctly. Thankfully, with a simple audio transmitter device, you can create a wireless signal that connects your TV to a set of Bluetooth speakers. You can also now do this with soundbars, which also provide highly-rated wireless surround sound.
