Take kitchen tv to other socket and try it.
If it doesn't work, the tv is either incorrectly tuned or has a receiver fault. The tv receiver circuitry is mostly independent of the radio and dvd playback stuff, so it can be faulty whilst everything else works (rare IME)..
If it does work - kitchen aerial lead is not giving (enough) signal. So trace the aerial lead back to where it joins with the other aerial leads. You may have a distribution box there that is faulty - try swapping the output leads around and see if the fault transfers to a different tv. Is so, replace the distribution box or get it repaired.
If the fault doesn't transfer, the cable between box and tv has a fault. There is a handy tool called a tdr which can localise the problem. It may then be possible to repair the cable at that point. However, tdrs are expensive... The alternative is to visually check along the cable, looking for damage. Or simply replace it. You may be able to use the existing, faulty, cable to pull sections of the replacement cable through voids.

Another option in addition to those mentioned is to take a working TV from the lounge or bedroom and try it in the kitchen. If another working TV works in the kitchen then you have a TV problem, if another working TV doesn't work in the kitchen then you have an aerial lead problem.
