I'm surprised the theme of "Why isn't my Blu-ray player acting more like my DVD?" has dragged on this long.
Much of our current-gen devices are like computers than not. They have a rudimentary operating system and effectively "boot up" when powered on. (Dig into the player's About screens to see for yourself) Blu-ray players reinitialize themselves at startup most likely to check for updates, and do DRM checks to see if it'll play content or not.
Old-school DVD players are effectively primitive mechanical klunkers by comparison. Power it off and the "head" stays in that spot until it's powered up again. It doesn't need to check for "permission" to play content on a DVD disc and THAT's why they all are capable of retaining your spot in a movie.
Blu-ray and HD-DVD players probably can't do that without adding even more complexity, so they offer a software bookmark. Hit the yellow "B" button on the remote and a virtual bookmark is saved in the player. While this isn't as simplistic as just powering off a DVD player, it DOES offer one huge advantage; in households that share the player where a different disc gets popped in, the player has memorized a collection of bookmarks and no one looses their place. Recall the bookmark by going into the Chapter Search menu.
Blu-ray authoring facilities (guys who build/design the menus) will sometimes add in-menu on-screen buttons that say something like "add bookmark" (usually in their Chapter Search pages). But even for those Blu-ray discs that don't get fancy with their menus, I've found the remote's (B) bookmark functions as expected.
Blu-ray players don't auto-resume. All of them? Most of them? Learn to use the bookmark button. Get over it.
Back to the BD-C6800... with the latest update at time of this post the Apps library now brings a free Vimeo app.
In November when I did a Samsung App update, I specifically recall it flashing a dialog box about installing a "MLBtv.com" app but no such icon showed up back then. A couple updates and months later, it's now available to select and download. Wierd.
There's still no HuluPlus app available for this player. Given where Hulu is going after the Comcast/NBC merger, this might not be relavent anymore.
The Netflix app for the Samsung BD-C6800 DOES offer full ability to add and delete titles to your instant-play queue. As a result, I've been using this player more frequently to stream content -- a good chunk of it seems to be in higher-definition-than-DVD.
Being away from the player, the free apps currently available for the BD-C6800 off the top of my head:
