I have Samsung 800 series TV with a Samsung soundbar.
I have 2 Play 1 speakers to hook up to rear for surround sound.
I can play music through my phone, but I can't download the Sonos app on my TV.
How can I hook up the speakers on the rear?

No, there's no Sonos solution that would allow you to use PLAY:1s as front speakers, either.

When using Sonos, you have your choice on the front of a PLAYBAR, PLAYBASE, Beam, or Sonos Amp driving your own speakers. The first three have all three front channels in the single bar, the latter allows you to drive your own unpowered speakers and creates a phantom center channel, i.e. there's no provision for a center speaker.

All of those options can use PLAY:1s as surround speakers.

To use the PLAY:1s as surround speakers, you'll need to have a Sonos soundbar. They won't connect either to the Samsung soundbar or the Samsung TV.
I thought that may be it.
Would it work if I we to have 2 more Play 1 and use them as the front?
