"I've decided to reduce the number of boards I serve on, so that I can focus on Netflix and on my education work," noted Hastings in the statement.

Microsoft shares dipped 0.14% to$29.24 in premarket trading on Wednesday.

Shares of Apple (AAPL - Get Report), which is rumored to be planning an iPad Mini launch for later this month, crept up 0.37% to $638.01.
