Can Roku Smart Soundbar stream content while TV is off?

Can the smart soundbar keep playing shows or music from apps like Netflix or Pandora even if I turn off the TV after I start playing them?

I like to fall asleep to shows or playlists but would like to turn off the TV to keep the room dark.  But most HDMI soundbars turn off or go to sleep as soon as you turn off the TV.

OK thanks for the info!

What about using the soundbar as a bluetooth speaker, like from my phone? I assume I could pair it and stream Spotify or Pandora to it that way.

Can the TV be off then? Or is the soundbar completely non-functional when the TV is off?
