Metro North Stations: Electric Signs Lacking?

Here's something I've never understood.
I've seen these signs in numerous Metro North stations. I have only seen them display the date. What is the purpose or point?
I'm curious why they don't display the time as well, something that would be very useful especially to the travler, especially when traveling by train.
If I want to take it a step further, what about a platform advisory and train ETA on these signs?
