Unlock 76,000 new Netflix categories with this cool secret codes hack
Ever opened up Netflix knowing exactly what kind of film you were looking for, yet found yourself met with frustration as you scrolled through the service’s limited genre categories? We certainly have. All of that is about to change, however, thanks to a cool hack that opens up a whole new world of Netflix categories.
Because Netflix uses an algorithm that only gives you genre options based on what it thinks might interest you, there are thousands upon thousands of movies and TV shows that lay neglected as you seek your next streaming selection. So allow us to blow your minds by letting you in on the secret of the service’s special codes.
We all know that if you search Netflix for a certain genre, like “Action & Adventure”, you’ll get a special URL for that particular category that reads something like “http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/1365.” But did you know that if you tinker around with the numbers at the end of the URL, you can unlock thousands of sub-genres and categories for your viewing pleasure?!
For example, “2852” will bring up “Exciting B-Horror Movies”, while you can access categories as specific as “Feel-Good Sports Movies For Ages 8 to 10” with code “855”, and “British Coming-of-Age Movies” with ID “2386”.
For an extensive list of genre categories such as “Action & Adventure based on a book from the 1970s” and “Cerebral French-Language Movies from the 1950s”, visit Ogres Crypt.
The secret codes are available to all Netflix regions.
