Now obviously, you can pick up an extension cord and move the television wherever you damn well please in your own home, but then you're faced with Unplggd's favorite challenge of what in the world to do with the ugly cord that snakes across the room.
You could try to work the cord along the walls and tuck it under the edge of the carpet or staple it just above same-colored baseboards. But then there's a problem if you run into doorways to cross over with the wire. You could run the cord from point A to point B and cover the new room-bisecting wire with a floor rug or lay out your furniture on top of it, but you're not likely to completely hide the eyesore.
Or, like me, you could just give in, buy a new TV stand that fits the space and put the TV where the cable connection is. What's your solution to cable-connection-forced room layouts? Do you fight the power(cord)? Or do you chill out and let the wires fall where they may?
