New Sonos Amp or Sonos Connect for Outdoor TV and 2 Speaker setup

Hello All, I'm trying to configure an outdoor TV and 2 speaker setup for my deck/pool area.

Is it possible to connect the new Sonos amp through a u-verse cable box and be able to switch from music/tv via the sonos amp?
TV will not have analog connection only hdmi. Would I be better served to purchase two Sonos Amps? Or am I better off purchasing 1 Connect Amp and running TV and Speakers through an audio receiver?

TV will be Sunbrite and 2 Definitive Technology AW6500 outdoor speakers.

Thanks all - Jason from Houston, TX

You would want the Amp. Go HDMI from the U-Verse to the TV and HDMI-ARC from the TV to the Amp. Then wire the amp outputs to the 2 speakers. Switching from TV to music would be via the Sonos app, from music to TV would be automatic if you turn on Autoplay TV in the settings.
