Media armoires worked great back in the day of analog TVs. Close the doors to hide the electronics and open them to watch. Those were simpler times. But today, flat-panel TVs are put on display more often than not. Mounting on walls or being set on top of consoles can actually complicate matters since remote controls typically use infrared signals to communicate with the devices. The little red light needs to be pointed directly at the component to change the channel, turn up the audio or pause the movie. A solid surface blocks this communication.
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.
