Help mounting TV for difficult living room please

I just moved into a new house and the living room has me stumped. I'm trying to find a solution for mounting the 55" TV. As you can see in the photo I've attached, the fireplace is on a small corner wall. There's a wall with a window directly to the right. Across from that wall is a couch. Across from the wall with the outlets is a love seat.

The easiest fix for the TV is to get a table and set it in front of those outlets with the TV on it. Problem with that is that the people sitting on the couch to the left will have to turn their heads 90 degrees to the left to see the TV!

One of the issues with this room is that the electrical outlet and coax cable wire outlet are on the wrong wall near the floor. I have a DirecTV Genie box that you can see next to the TV.

I thought about a full motion mount installed on the wall above the outlets and pulling the TV out and to the right so it's in front of the fireplace, but it doesn't solve the problems of the wires and the Genie box.

I figured I might be able to get a solution here from people that are into home theater for a hobby. Essentially, I need to have the TV at the angle of the fireplace wall so all in the room can see it without twisting their necks.. Thanks in advance!

Use a power bridge to put power behind the TV (monoprice.com search power bridge) or have an electrician put in an outlet with low voltage port like I did here.

Thank you for the info. I guess the biggest problem is what to do with the Genie box. If I get a table to put it on in front of that wall, that will shrink my already small living room. It would be nice to be able to mount the genie box with the TV somehow.
