With current charging capabilities, electric vehicles will inevitably require some waiting around. But Tesla has been doing what it can to help owners entertain themselves.
The most recent entertainment addition is support for video playback, Chief Executive Elon Musk said on Twitter. The feature will be available while the car is in park and connected to a WiFi network. Tesla made a similar move with TeslAtari, an in-car gaming system with titles like Missile Command, Asteroids, Lunar Lander, and Centipede.
It will enable video when parked & connected to WiFi. All Tesla Superchargers will have free WiFi over time.

Musk did not offer a specific rollout date or details for Tesla’s in-car video playback capabilities, however when asked if the feature will support video streaming services like Netflix and YouTube he replied “Version 10.”
Tesla’s plan to enable video streaming will certainly benefit from a planned upgrade to the Supercharger Network, which provide free WiFi to Tesla owners recharging their cars.
