Analogue switch-off date on 1 January 2011, not 2012

With reference to the interview with BA Chief Executive Officer Pierre Cassar, which was published in Business Today on 02 September 2009, the quote “instead of the traditional antenna, there will be a digital set-top box and a smaller antenna to receive these six stations as from 1 January 2012,” the date should have read 1 January 2011, not 2012.
Later in the interview, the quote “I am hopeful that with the collective work of all those involved – there is a steering committee composed of various people from different Ministries and entities – we should not respect the 31 December 2010 deadline for the switch-off analogue television broadcasts,” the words “we should not respect” should have read “we should respect”. Any inconvenience is regretted.
