Can I use this display with 2 inputs - one from the new MB Pro and another from say an Apple TV?
Is there a feature to have multiple inputs and a way to switch between the inputs?

Jessie & William - Many thanks. I was hoping, but expected as much. My 2011 27" iMac is doing well, but looking to replace it with a new 15" MBP and wanted an external monitor (or two). If I got a 2nd monitor, I'd want it to have the ability to serve as a TV or Apple TV source when I don't need the extra screen real estate for computing. I guess I'll have to look elsewhere for something with multiple input - maybe a 27" 4k monitor with multiple inputs and an adapter for the MBP (USB-C to Display Port). --- Thanks again.

Per LG: This would be able to work with Apple TV but not another Mac. It can only support 1 mac device at a time.

My guess is no (don't have a definitive answer) - but it only has 1 thunderbolt 3 input (3 hub output) so only one source can be plugged in at a time. Plus the AppleTV does not have a video out in the form of Thunderbolt 3 or even USB-C to be compatible with the single input port.

It is not possible for multiple reasons. First, on the system requirements, it states that it must be running a version of MacOs Sierra and it needs a thunderbolt 3 connection. Each display can't even power two new MacBook Pros since the display only has on Thunderbolt 3 and three lower tier usb-c output so it can only currently power one MB Pro and no more.
