Remember to emphasize that none of the discipline arises from your wish to be mean or to upset him, but is a totally predictable and automatic consequence of ways he chooses to behave - and that he can choose NOT to behave those ways, and thus avoid any punishment at all.
Emphasize that the discipline is BECAUSE you love him so much, and want him to live long and well, to help him to improve and be even more loveable.
He sounds unduly focussed on grievances - most ids his age are so busy with playing and friends ( he also sounds rather solitary ? ) that they wouldn't have time to continue brooding over an interruption to their TV viewing.
Maybe, as thiese sem to be long-standing traits, it'd be worth getting him assessed by a good child psychologist, who can then discuss the best ways of managing his over-sensitivity. Play therapy might be one eventual option, but I prefer to start with a broader expert assessment. Going straight to a play therapist ( not a predictable form of therapy, as less regulated than most ) is a bit like going to a surgeon - you already know he's likely to recommend surgery !
