Watching movies while charging

Watching movies while charging

can we watch movies in a tesla model S mid 2018 while charging ?

Yes, using one of the new Theater Mode apps (NetFlix, Hulu, YouTube). MCU2, which is required, went into production in March 2018.

And you can only watch movies while parked.

It is not legal in the USA to have a video (other than rear camera) in view of a driver while driving, so Tesla disables video while driving.

Yes, TT, but it's okay if you are using AP. :)

I am afraid i have MCU1 and i should upgrade to MCU2 to have theater option.
Anybody knows if the upgrade is avaliable and how much it is ?

Upgrade not available, although Elon said it would be. Maybe "soon"?

I have heard nothing about Tesla ramping up MCU production for upgrades. I do know they have already sent Autopilot 3.0 to service centers. They’re just waiting for instructions as to when and who are to get them.

Yep @ElonMusk said so...so it must be true ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
