You can get a hdmi adapter for it though can't you? Looks like a USB on one side and HDMI on the other?

I think (might be wrong) you are thinking about a device (e.g. Blackberry Playbook) with a mini/micro? HDMI output? This looks like a micro-USB port, but is not.

Nexus 7 doesn't support MHL (the USB to HDMI you're thinking of is called that), but it does support Miracast, which is basically a variant of Chromecast that mirrors the display, not app specific. I'm fairly sure it does anyway, but only on the 2013 model. What you'd need there is just a Miracast receiver that plugs into the television, or a television that natively supports it.

Google are fairly annoying with the limits they impose to push their own hardware. I think it's possible to get Miracast on other Nexus 7 models, but it's experimental.
