    Is it posible to connect 2 HDMI monitors to a 2016 MacBook 15"?

    edit: Another question, is it possible to use a single USB-C monitor and a HDMI monitor together with a 2016 MacBook 15"?

    I've asked 2 or 3 times on here about an easy way to get 2 HDMI outs and haven't got a response. I believe the only realalistic way to accomplish this right now is two separate USB-C to HDMI adaptors which sucks having to plug in everyday at work.

    I was thinking along the same lines. Not ideal, but just wanted conformation if that will 100% work.

    I am struggling to find any USB-C and HDMI compatible monitors.

    Probably, but why?
    That display also has a DisplayPort connector.
    So, both could be USB-C to DisplayPort, or USB-C to HDMI...
    Here's an example

    You want a monitor that support USB-C and HDMI?

    Compatible in terms of what? Won't it simply be a case of swapping out the cables?

    That's right. Ideally, I am after a dual monitor set-up for my MacBook Pro which can connect through USB-C. And I would like the monitor to also have HDMI so I can connect my PS4 to it.

    I would have gone for the LG ultrasharp 5k, but they do not have HDMI so I cannot connect my PS4.

    Thanks, buddy.4k is also fine.

    Unfortunately, this model is no longer available on Amazon.co.uk, where I wanted to buy from :(
