If you want power or other outlets behind a wall mount TV on a slim bracket then take a look at the Syncbox range (was successfully pitched on Dragon’s Den some years ago). Providing you have the available depth in the wall to accommodate the very deep back box it works very well, and using modular fittings you can terminate power, aerial coax, and ethernet data modules etc for a very neat install.

If you have an unobstructed vertical drop inside the wall then the other option is to use brush faceplates and drop all the cables down the wall to a second brush plate, from which you can take them to sockets at low level instead. Obviously if you have horizontal studs in the wall this does not work.

wish I had seen this info a few weeks back, as racked hi and low for these was not sure the name all seemed to be in US, I had to feed the plug down through plasterboard wall while others held the tv and pain it was.
but at £75 they are having a laugh me thinks at even £45 I would have snapped their hands off, still the connections on the tv were all spread out

Not cheap, but it’s well designed and works perfectly. They make the install very neat and tidy and avoid the need for cable threading while trying to hold an expensive TV in place!

I used the brush faceplates in the end as you have mentioned. Worked perfectly fine for me

Literally just put up TV for Mum, hers is an older 42" LCD TV, so is not LED Backlit so weighs a ton but she needed to have it tilt outwards at an angle just a small bit...

So used this...

https://www.amazon.co.uk/VonHaus-Dou.../dp/B00N50Q66Y

And I've used these a lot over the past few years, they are brilliant, I have the proper setting tool for them but you can do them manually I have hung heavy units, tvs, floating shelves and all sorts.

8 of them fixings on sound plasterboard and it's very secure.

I think it should be quite easy for me to do this because of the hollow stud walls.
That depends on your plasterboard. The plasterboard in mu house has a honeycomb cardboard structure on the back which is pretty strong. Feeding cables behind the wall means breaking through each of the honeycomb squares.

This is a hige pain in the butt to do and makes what should be a reasonable qui c k job into a very long one.
