Product Information

  • Instant smart TV: Plug in the JBL Link Bar to your TV via HDMI, and you'll instantly convert your regular TV to a smart one. This means you'll have access to Youtube TV, Netflix, HBO, Disney and so much more! If there's a live game or international news channel you would like to watch, download the right app for it via Android TV. There's a whole selection of games and apps such as Crashlands, Google Drive and Google Music.
  • “OK Google, turn off”: The JBL Link series, including this soundbar, comes with Google Assistant integration. When you add it to your Google Home app, you can ask the Link Bar questions and commands for your other smart devices. Tell the Link Bar to lock the front door, change the color of your lights, turn up the heat. All set for a cozy night-in to for some TV binging.
  • Cast it from your smartphone: Having a family get together after a long vacation? Use Chromecast to display photos and videos from your trip on the TV. Set it as a slide show in the background. You can cast hundreds of apps from your phone to the TV, especially apps you cannot find on Android TV.
  • Three 4K HDMI inputs: The Link Bar has three HDMI ports so you can connect the TV, Playstation and Xbox all at once. So the next time you want to change between devices, you don't have to mess with the cables. Just ask “Hey Google, switch to the PlayStation”.
  • Smooth sound for a home theatre: If you're not hunting for a smart speaker with explosive bass performance, then the Link Bar is ideal. It produces crisp dialogue which is perfect for movie, gaming, news or podcasts. It won't produce concert-like audio, but when you play songs, the Link Bar has a clear sound even at 100w.

The JBL Link Bar in action

Setting up the Link Bar is really easy. Plug in the HDMI ARC input and the other end into any of the HDMI ports on the back of the soundbar. If your TV does not have an HDMI input, you can still connect the Link Bar using the optical cable. You'll be able to enjoy the 5.1 surround sound but the smart TV functionality will not be available without HDMI connection. With two other HDMI ports, you can connect your PlayStation or other game consoles.

Smart surround soundbar

JBL is known for delivering superior sound from compact speakers and the Link Bar truly lives up to that expectation. Music and voice are easily distinguishable. This makes those action sequences more enjoyable as the dialogue isn't drowned out. More than audio performance, the JBL Link Bar brings Android TV, Google Assistant and Chromecast. Download apps for movies, games, TV, news and more. If it's not available on Android, access it on your smartphone and cast it to the TV screen using Chromecast. If you can’t find the TV or JBL remote, just ask Google Assistant to turn off everything. The Link Bar is really well thought out to make a great smart home entertainment experience from simply connecting one device. With future updates, the features are expected to expand.

Invest in a JBL SW10 wireless subwoofer that has been specifically built to enhance the bass experience of the Link Bar. It has a simple set up and pairs harmoniously with the soundbar.

FAQs
Can I connect the JBL Link Bar to my TV?

The JBL Link Bar gives you enough input options to make it compatible with most televisions. If your TV or A/V receiver doesn't have an HDMI port, you can connect the Link Bar through the Toslink optical audio output. However, to stream Android TV on your television, you will need to connect the bar via the HDMI port.

Does Amazon Prime work with Android TV in the JBL Link Bar?

Amazon Prime is currently not available but Prime is working to develop an Android TV version of its streaming service.

Can I group JBL Link Bar with other speakers on Google Home?

Currently, it is not possible to add the JBL Link Bar to an existing speaker group on Google Home. Google Home recognizes it as a TV, not a smart speaker.
