Time Warner Cable CEO Glenn Britt's compensation grew 9% last year to $17.4 million, according to a regulatory filing Wednesday.

Included in the Securities and Exchange filing was a stock chart indicating that TWC shares advanced 166% from late 2008 to late 2010, outperforming the S&P 500 (up 46%) and a peer group of TV companies (up 44%).

In the filing, TWC noted that Britt's base salary -- $1.25 million -- was the same as it was in 2002 and that his compensation is roughly in line with CEOs at other such providers of TV services as DirecTV, Dish Network, AT&T, Cablevision and Comcast.

Nearly half of Britt's compensation came by way of non-equity incentives, while stock and options amounted to $7.4 million.

His compensation also included $186,000 for personal use of corporate-owned aircraft.
