Oh yeah, it'll be an improvement alright. But that's from the disc, it won't turn your TV into something better than it is.
In other words, your TV won't upscale to 4K, so there's a good chance that unless you're playing 4K material (less compressed, better master & higher bitrate), it'll look better. If you try and upconvert a 1080p Blu-ray disc, I don't know if there will be a single difference. You'll need a 4KTV for that.
