To be fair to TV manufacturers, for the most part, TVs are actually still quite easy to repair. And yes, it is often the capacitors (or diodes) that blow. But even if it's something more complex, there are often spare boards available at sensible prices. If I see a TV chucked out on the street, I always bring it in to see if the fix is worth it, and it frequently is – people often just assume it's not worth repairing things these days.
