Hello, I am thinking about purchasing a 4k LG TV with WebOS, but the only ways to watch 4k content currently seems to be via online sources such as Netflix, Amazon or YouTube according to this page on the WebOS developer site.

 

Could anyone give me any information on this, I'm hoping that the page I linked to is out of date and the TV actually can play 4k content, being a 4k TV and all. I'm also wondering if it supports other formats such as Matroska like some of the older LG TVs do.

 

Thank you in advance, help would be appreciated!

It does support  mkv, avi, mp4 video file container with VIDEO/AUDIO standards x264, AC3, AAC, DTS via USB and DLNA, and x265 video format only on USB drive.

 

I hope they will support x265 via DLNA too soon because it is a pain having to copy a video to USB and then plug it into the TV when we have all medias on our network drives

Forgot to mention that in general 4k videos, 2160p are encoded using x265, as per my message above.
