Simulated Marathon mode

Sometimes TV channels will have movie/tv show marathons. Those are great, since whenever you turn on the TV, something is playing, and it’s not up to you to decide when to play it or what to play. Even when you turn off the TV, you come back later and it’s deeper into the marathon.

Can you do something similar with playlists? Specifically, can I have a playlist start playing, and if I leave the app or turn off ATV, I can come back later and the marathon has kept track of time and starts playing right where it would had I not stopped watching?

Also, an infinite loop setting would be good too.
