Default Blu Ray with dead network

My Samsung BD-P3600 is working, except that the network connection quit working when some sort of surge killed several of my devices. I am getting a new Samsung PN60E550 smart TV with Internet connectivity, and I'm wondering if there is any strong reason to replace the Blu Ray player. Any ideas on what, if anything, I would sacrifice by not having both devices connected to the Internet?

It's probably redundant, the TV will likely have the same (if not more) internet apps than the 2 year old player.

One thing I've run into that keeps me from using my TV for the smart features though is that the ridiculous motion interpolation cannot be disabled for the smart features. You can turn it off for each input, but not for the stuff that's built into the TV. So I watch Vudu/Netflix through my blu ray player since I hate the floaty 'soap opera' effect.

Another more minor thing would be if the TV doesn't offer an HDMI audio return channel. You may not be able to get more than 5.1 dolby digital out over audio. Not a big deal but Vudu does offer most titles in DD+ and some in 7.1.

It had about four apps, all of which are also on the TV. My question is really whether network apps on the Blu Ray player even matter, if they are also on the TV.

I had one. The surge apparently came in through the Ethernet, since it blew the network card in my computer plus my router, but nothing else.

That suks! I don't see any diff/ in how you get netflix or other net service's. It should all be equal.
