If there is an app for such for your TV on http://www.lg.com/uk/support/guides/tv/smart-tv/apps (this is the uk site, but your TV will use your local site): download, install and enjoy.
If there isn't such an app, you'll need additional hardware (for example a PC with a 4K player and videocard and a hdmi-cable), or a Bluray burner/reader.

Hi Kees_B
Many thanks for your answer, will take a look, was hoping for a quick fix, is it possible to just plug in a usb? B.

That depends on the app. An app to play something from USB (not necessarily a 4K UHD .mkv file) might be installed already. Did you study the user manual and browse through the apps menu?

And isn't downloading another app (if necessary) a quick fix?
