Newbie - best soundbar with Panasonic TX-55HZ1000B

I'm going to get a 55" TV and wall mount it. The one below looks good to me. It's a Panasonic TX-55HZ1000B (2020) OLED HDR 4K Ultra HD Smart TV. It is top of our budget at £1300.

What we watch

Mainly Netflix
General TV
Some films but not that often
I love sport but don't have Sky so have to rely only on the odd occasion that it's on normal TV
We have rubbish broadband so nothing will be ULTRA HD, just normal 1080p


I know nothing about these, but some things I have read say that the audio comes out so much clearer than the TV speakers. I am willing to spend around £300 on one... £400 at absolute most.

The Sonos Beam fits into this category at £379.

Is there anything I should consider when making these choices? I'm just beginning research but want to buy in about 3-4 weeks time

I have read one post somewhere that said something like The Sonos Beam could not connect properly with the Panasonic. That has concerned me, I want to turn the TV on and all sound just flow automatically through the soundbar.

Can you guys confirm if the Sonos would do this
Any other recommendations for this price range?
