My 4K content delivery system.
Do these 4k tv's have usb? I sure hope they do.
A 4K redbox is currently the best solution. Companies like sony could easily ship hard drives of data to a redbox like system.
Then consumers could either bring their own usb or hdd ssd external drive to the machine. Pop it in, and rent and transfer content to the system. Most likely the DRM will come in when trying to play the content on a device. Something like ultraviolet could probably handle that part.
The external drives themselves could easily be sold and integrated in with the television.
Or, they could be supplied by the redbox machine itself with a minimal deposit of some sort.
