You bear in mind, anything you can buy from amazon you can buy for a lot cheaper on eBay.

A lot cheaper and a lot faker with less ability to gauge the quality from reviews (though Amazon is getting a bit ropey in this respect).

It depends on which model you have. The Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter linked above will work for most middle aged macs with a Mini DisplayPort or Thunderbolt 1 or 2 output. Older and newer machines will need different cables.

I got a thunderbolt to HDMI-VGA-DVI adapter from eBay for £4, works really well.
If you have a smart tv you can connect via wifi find the right software to air play to it
I tend to use my Google Chromecast to cast from Mac to a TV. It works very well.
