I can think of a few, but none are compelling enough to spend extra money if you don't want to.
If you wanted to put the BluRay player on a different TV that WASN'T "smart", it might be nice to have that functionality on 2 TVs (ie, bedroom TV).
Or if the BluRay offered something the TV didn't (for a while, Hulu+ was only on SOME devices, for example).
Other than that... meh.
