I would not suggest physically moving the outlet - rather tap from the outlet and run the wiring into a box specifically designed for it. Its called the lcd flat screen outlet box. Its designed for electrical and surround sound wiring. You can pick one up from any graybar or electrical supply house that carries arlington products.

Here is a diagram of how to attach the wiring:
