Apple TV connects most of your content in iCloud - movies, TV shows, app purchases, podcasts, music, etc. - but until fairly recently, you had to download and install apps one-by-one if you had to restore your Apple TV. With One Home Screen, you can simply sign into iCloud and everything on one Home Screen will automatically sync to all Apple TV devices.
