I have only a few 4K UHD Blu-ray discs and they DO look sharper on my 4K capable TV vs 4K from streaming services like AppleTV or Netflix.
Interestingly, I also find that over the air local HDTV broadcasts are sharper than the same content coming through our Cable TV service. For example, if I'm watching a live sporting event like NFL football the over the air broadcasts are sharper than the same event coming over Cable TV. They're both good, but over the air is a bit sharper. But I can't rewind and instant-replay over the air like I can with Cable TV ;-)

A nice article about why ota is less compressed than cable.
using an antenna provides the best picture quality. Now of course, this is all relative...there are all these side channels now, like 7.2, 7.3, etc. and many of those are bit starved and look terrible. But a major station like a network will likely look best over the air.
