LOS GATOS, Calif. - Netflix Chairman and CEO Reed Hastings is getting a 50 per cent pay bump in 2014 after a year in which shares of the online video subscription company quadrupled to an all-time high.

A regulatory filing shows that Hastings' annual salary will climb from $2 million to $3 million next year, and his annual stock option allowance also will rise by $1 million to $3 million. The $6 million in total pay compares to $4 million in 2013, when his pay doubled.
