I've been on a trip lately and stayed in a hotel. The TV screen in that hotel was above the eye level when I sat down on the bed. It was not a good experience because I have to extend my neck to focus on what I was watching. When we have a small screen in the home theater, we should always consider the angle of the screen so we don't have to strain our necks.

Where you went wrong, is that you were sitting up rather than lying down to watch television with some pillows gently propping you up. You just need to be lazier.
Seriously though, I bet the whole television setup was just an afterthought unless you were staying somewhere swanky. Or maybe they were just trying to avoid the glare through the big windows.

You're right about how important it is to consider the screen angle. I remember when big flat-screens first became a thing, we bought one and expected it to fit where our old television went since we'd measured everything. Foolishly, we only considered the length and width of the television. Our new T.V. technically fit fine there, but it was super uncomfortable to watch thanks to having to constantly look way up at it. We didn't think that one out too well.

The arm holding the screen usually has a ball-and-socket setup that you can adjust to your eye level. If the screen has been screwed, we can't do anything about it.

What you have described is our setup in the house. The screen in the hotel that I stayed in has a fixed mount on the wall without the neck brace, so I couldn't adjust the screen.
