It's called up-scaling.
A 4K TV needs to blow up the 1080p picture to fill the screen.

Here's an excerpt from CNET.

"...Just because a TV is 4K doesn't mean it has a good scaler built-in. On cheaper 4K TVs, for instance, you probably save money because of a sub-par scaler. So in these cases, 1080p content probably won't look any better (and possibly worse).
Sadly, as far as scaling performance is concerned, you usually get what you pay for..."~ CNET
