All platforms will undergo scheduled maintenance Tuesday November 30 starting at
7am PT/10am ET/3pm GMT UK for approx 2 hours downtime.
Among other things, this patch will address issues with the Knox Box - the free ones from the RCA will be reactivated after maintenance.
It is also looking likely that the Knox Box availability will be extended beyond the original end date and into early next week. We will confirm the details as they become officially available.
