Netflix Secret Codes: Unlock Best Movies, TV Shows & Documentaries

Netflix Secret Codes: Unlock Best Movies, TV Shows & Documentaries

Netflix contains a huge number of movies, documentaries and TV shows, and it’s not always easy to find what you’re interested in right now. With these codes, aimless scrolling can become a thing of the past.

There’s nothing quite like the mind-numbing monotony of flicking through Netflix’s catalog; vast and peppered with quality, and somehow you end up stricken with indecisiveness. The repetitive click each time you move downwards is enough to drive someone insane.

The streaming platform already provides a number of categories, such as Award-winning Films, Romantic Comedies, Thrillers, Blockbuster Films, and more.

However, for whatever reason, it can feel like multiple categories are presenting you with the same movies and shows. With these codes, you can make your search more specific; in turn, you’ll uncover all of what Netflix has to offer.

How to use Netflix’s secret codes

It’s rather simple: each code corresponds to a subcategory in a broader group of movies. For example, while Netflix will show you Comedies on your homepage, one code will show you all of the Late Night Comedies, while another will reveal all of the Sports Comedies.

Disclaimer: you can only use the codes if you’re accessing Netflix via a browser. All you need to do is add the respective code to the end of your URL, which should look like this: “https://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/”

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