Netflix consists of an extensive library, but sometimes you may feel like you have watched every good movie available on Netflix. You may feel like it, especially considering that the content on the homepage is mainly based on the genre you had previously watched. You will need to use Netflix secret codes to get past these suggestions.
If you think that Netflix doesn’t have enough content in its library, you are mistaken. The shows and movies available on the Netflix library can cause a shortage of popcorn at your local store. You may feel like you are not getting enough because you are only viewing the content that is automatically shown to you. Why not search the content for yourself?
Did you know that Netflix consists of secret codes that help you unlock extra content? Unfortunately, you can miss that, for the menu is not readily available. But the codes help you get content that is not visible on your homepage. For example, if you happen to like the genre of action movies, you won’t find a full list of action movies on Netflix without using secret codes.
How to unlock hidden Netflix content
Using your PC or a smartphone or any other device supported by Netflix that can access the internet, you can browse all movies and shows on Netflix. The list below consists of secret codes for every genre. Once you have found the code of the genre you are interested in, type http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/CODE on your web browser. Insert the code of the genre you would like to watch in place of “CODE.”
For example, if you want to watch “Netflix comedies,” type the URL http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/ and replace “genre” with the code 6548, and you will be directed to the landing page for Netflix Comedies. Below are the codes that will help you find hidden Netflix movies.
