How do I tell alexa to tell my Sonos beam to use the tv input?

I'll give the alexa/beam the following command "alexa ask cbc to play radio one", it opens a streaming radio service. To switch the beam back to the TV input i have to open up the sonos app and pick "TV" for it to go and play audio from the tv source. Is there a voice command can i give to the alexa/beam to have it switch to tv without opening the sonos app?

Thanks

"Alexa, switch to TV" should do it.

Didn't work. I get a response back saying that i need to configure the alexa skill.
Working now using “Alexa switch to tv”. Not sure if anything changed or if I didn’t enunciate correctly.
