The wall needs to be thicker than the standard 4" thick wall to accomodate the thickness of the TV and leave some room for the wires to run in the cavity behind it. You will not see the wires all you see is the cable outlet to connect the tv to it. The cable outlet would be behind the TV. All the needed outlets from electricity, to cable, to HDMI all can be behind the TV. There are also some recessed outlets to accomodate thick plugs so the TV will fit flush with the wall.

Here is a photo of a TV we installed and we ran all the wires in the wall and the plugs were all behind the TV.

Well the cable box and receiver were in the basement. The wall where the TV is is actually the wall of the staircase that goes down to the basement. We placed the receiver under the stairs and ran the wire through the wall to an outlet behind the TV.
