No - sadly it doesn't.

You need to go down the road of using third party software like Plex or the LG badged Smartshare to view your content on your TV. And viewing is all you will be doing - no deleting or moving files about.

To be fair it is all mentioned in the user guide but like you I expected to plug in drive and view on TV.

My TV came with Smart share but the Nas does not show up in there. How would I do that?
