True. I used a product from this company: http://www.powerbridgesolution.com/powerbridgeproducts.html to wall mount the TV in my family room a few years back when there was no outlet in reach. It uses romex, which is OK for in-wall use per code. You put an "outlet" up high where the TV will be mounted and it has an opening to run cables through. Another "outlet" goes down low on the wall, then that "outlet" can be plugged into a surge protector (which is plugged in obviously) to give the TV power and surge protection.
For my 65VT50, which will be wall-mounted in our soon-to-be-finished basement, I had everything pre-wired before the walls were closed up.
