By default, light San Francisco font is enabled on Apple TV. The folks who don't have 20/20 vision (a term used to describe normal visual acuity measured at a distance of 20 feet.) may find this light typeface ineligible, particularly against darker backgrounds. Fortunately, there is an option to enable bold text on Apple TV.
As compared to San Francisco font, bold text is a bit easier to read as the font is heavier and a darker. Let me show you how you can activate it.
How to Enable Bold Text on Apple TV 4K or 4th Generation
Note: This feature works on fourth generation Apple TV and later.
Step #1. Launch Settings app on your Apple TV.
Step #2. Now, click General and then select Accessibility.
Step #3. Next, select the Bold Text option located under the Interface heading.
Then, press the Touch surface on your Siri Remote.
