TV audio issues with PS4

So, on impulse I bought a PS4 over the weekend. Upon purchasing, I realized that the system only has HDMI out, and only one at that. I've been using an old tube TV someone left at my college apartment, so my brother gave me a 40-something inch TV to use. Problem is, the TV won't play audio. And even if I plug different speakers into the TV, it still won't play.

I'm currently using a pair of computer speakers, running through the controller's headphone jack. That works fine, but the cable for the speakers is kinda short so I have to either sit really close to the TV, or have the speakers halfway between the TV and me. Definitely not ideal.

At a certain point, the TV was free so I'm not complaining. But I would like to figure out a better way to run the audio. I'm assuming there's some way to split the audio and visual signals from the HDMI cable, and send the video to the TV and the audio to a sound bar or something? What are my options here?

buy one of the 30 foot aux cords problem solved haha. You may try an hdmi to analog. Adapter should allow you to run Video to tv and audio to sound board. If I'm not mistaken

...so I had no idea that optical cables were a thing. PS4 has an optical out, so I just got w cheap sound bar. Works great. Problem solved, and I feel dumb.
