Having Netflix, YouTube and games available on the center screen is a pretty big deal. Owners are going to want a way to pass the time when they're at a charger for 45 minutes. Hopefully some good apps are announced with release of the vehicle.
I've never used any of those features when charging in my Tesla. Sort of a non issue for most people. I have an Ipad and phone I can watch videos on, don't need the car to be able to do it.

I'll be home in bed whenever mine is charging. 🛌 🤗

That's nice. However, your personal charging plans are not applicable for the great many owners who are going to actually use the vehicle's full range and DC fast charging charging capabilities.

For those of us who are going to take their MMEs beyond 250-300 miles and anticipate charging sessions of more than 20 minutes, it's sort of a nice thing to have.

Additionally, from a market-competitive standpoint, it would greatly behoove Ford to have entertainment options on that beautiful center screen. At a minimum, it takes away a selling point from Tesla.

one way for ford to distinguish themselves and put them ahead of tesla is to offer full implementation of apple carplay and android auto and/or make partnerships with netfix, disneyplus, etc

it would be great to take advantage of the large screens for apps and navigation- and it would be nice to be able to use our existing cell phones’ plans or wifi for the streaming and not have to pay another streaming fee. if people want a separate internet plan for their car, that can always be offered as an option too
