Older TV without ARC but with digital audio - will Roku Soundbar work?

I have an older Sony Bravia with two HDMI ports, neither of which is ARC. It does have a digital audio port. Can I use the Roku Soundbar with that setup? 

My other issue is that both of the HDMI ports are currently in use (one to the cable box and the other to a Chromecast). Could I get some kind of HDMI hub to plug into one of the HDMI ports on my TV and then plug the Chromecast and the Roku Soundbar into the hub?

This digital output has to be optical. The Roku soundbar remote only controls the tv by hdmi-cec, having a second device in that chain might effect it, can't say if it will or not?
