Netflix Secret Codes

A Netflix homepage will list categories based on algorithms that factor an accountholder’s personalised viewing habits and preferences. Therefore, each account is presented with an entirely different set of suggestions than the next, and may be locked out of being shown a specific category due to a watching something that may not entirely reflect their tastes.

However, by using a simple web address trick, you can find any one of Netflix’s many genres and sub-genres when changing certain numbers in a URL. Specifically, when logging into Netflix, type www.netflix.com/browse/genre/XXXX into your search-bar to bring up one of the thousands of genres that are listed in Netflix’s library. This way, you, rather than an algorithm has control of the content that you can stream, binge, or ‘chill’ to.
