Improved PQ for AppleTV

Anyone else notice an improvement of the image quality of the Home screen and associated screens? Gen4 has been terrific out of the gate, but there is a noticeable change in the rendering, e.g., even crisper text and smoother backgrounds. I'm connected via Verizon FiOS 100mps matched to a Gateway Quantum router.

Perhaps Apple is upgrading the backend to prep for 4k?

Space | The Media Room: 10.5 L x 7.5 W x 7.5 H | FiOS 100Mbps Ethernet
Sound | 5.1.2: Denon AVR-S920W | Pioneer SP-BS22-LR/SP-C22/SP-T22A-LR Atmos | Polk OWM3/PSW10
Vision | 4K: 2015 Vizio M43 | MS XB1S | AppleTV 4 | Sony BDP-S3100 | FiOS Moto QIP7232-P2

I haven't noticed any specific change in the Home screen or text, but I've always thought that the Apple TV 1080p video looked noticeably better than any other streamer I've tried, and I've tried just about all of them. It's as if the ATV has had it's own ISF calibration! All it needs is 4K and an Amazon app to be perfect. I know, that's wishful thinking about the Amazon app.

The screen savers on the atv4 are particularly impressive. But right now I'm annoyed that the tv app has stopped tracking the latest episodes in my watch list.

Agree with you about the look of 1080p video. It's significantly better than other 1080p feeds I've seen.
