Netflix secret codes: how to unlock the best movies, shows and documentaries

0

Netflix is ​​a treasure trove of movies, documentaries and TV shows that beg to binge – if you know where to look, of course. With these codes, aimless scrolling could be a thing of the past.

There’s nothing quite like the numbing monotony of flipping through Netflix’s catalog; vast and dotted with quality, and somehow you end up being struck with indecision. The repetitive click every time you move down is enough to drive someone crazy.

The streaming platform already offers a number of categories, such as award-winning movies, romantic comedies, thrillers, blockbuster movies, and more.

However, for some reason, it might seem like multiple categories are showing you the same movies and shows. With these codes, you can make your search more precise; in turn, you will experience all that Netflix has to offer.

How to Redeem Netflix Secret Codes

It’s quite simple: each code corresponds to a subcategory in a larger group of films. For example, while Netflix will show you comedies on your homepage, one code will show you all late night comedies, while another will reveal all sports comedies.

Disclaimer: you can only redeem the codes if you access Netflix through a browser. All you have to do is add the corresponding code at the end of your URLwhich should look like this: “https://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/”

To make it easier for you, we’ve split the codes – as provided by the Radio Times – and listed them with their overall category. Happy spreading!
