Cutouts in the rear of a media console do more than allow cords through. The openings also permit much-needed ventilation. Electronics get hot when in use, and you'll want air to flow around them and vent outside the cabinet. This reduces the risk of fire, and can lengthen the life of the components.
While it may not seem practical to place items in front of the TV to block it (after all, it is meant to be seen at least some of the time), keep in mind that the TV doesn’t necessarily need to be hidden from all angles. A chair placed between you and the TV will hide it (at least partially) when people are traversing the hallways and passing by, so the screen is at least hidden when you aren’t plopped down on the sofa. Note that pushing a TV into the back of a deep bookshelf will similarly minimize it from many angles, making this technique doubly effective.
