Sure, most video cards have had a TV-out for quite a few years now; nowadays it's almost always
an S-video out, while the older ones had composite out.

Yes. Get a video card that features Video Out. It's fairly common.

Actually, it's the same thing.. I don't know about any adapters if the
notebook doesn't come with one, but most new notebooks come with a s-video
out.
