I own a 15" MacBook Pro late 2009, is there anything I can do to watch audio and video from a Mac to a 1080p HDTV?

I want to watch internet tv from my late 2009 15" MacBook Pro to a 1080p HDTV with HDMI hookup or any other way. I looked under "About This Mac", selected "more info", and under "hardware" selected "Audio(Built In)". There is no HDMI installed on this laptop. If I need to buy adaptors, that will be ok. I just need to know if it possible to do this with this laptop. Is this possible? Thanks for any help!

    I connect my old MacBook to my HDTV often with a "Mini DisplayPort-to-HDMI Adapter" (I use Dynex). I connect an HDMI cable to my tv. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable to the Dynex adapter. The other side of the Dynex adapter plugs right into the MacBook's mini Display Port. The picture quality is gorgeous.

    For audio: I connect my laptop to small external speakers or to my stereo, the same way I do when I listen to music.

    I hope that helps.
