This secret Netflix code gives you access to so many hidden films and series

More content for us to enjoy!

Netflix knows us so well that it's sometimes boring to go to the streaming service's homepage: an algorithm and a little magic analyze our viewing behaviour and always suggest new series and films. The algorithm is based on our previously seen (and rated) strips. Where the magic comes from is still inexplicable: when you've just been talking about a film, it suddenly pops up in the recommendations.

Netflix codes: secret trick for more films and series

Netflix has many more films in its program than we see: If you like romantic comedies, "horror classics from Asia" won't necessarily appear in the recommendations. Or the other way around: Thanks to the algorithm (and fairy dust), the Netflix homepage and its subpages look different for every single user. However, every Netflix user can access all available titles, i.e. tens of thousands of titles. You only have to know how!

Netflix genre codes: This is how you find all the content

Netflix works well structured with folders. There is a subfolder for every subgenre of the TV and cinema world, no matter how absurd. The streaming service gives it a number, and is then easy to find. For example, "B horror films" have the code number 8195. So if you're looking for bad scary films, all you have to do is type into the browser bar, and you'll end up in the fake blood underworld. By the way, with this method, all available titles are displayed and not just the first 20, as is usual on the Netflix homepage.

Secret Netflix Codes All Streaming Fans Should Know

So if you want to get a taste of it and simply want to watch a fantasy epic in series instead of a feature-length comedy or want to find well-hidden gems in the Netflix universe, you'll definitely get ahead with this Netflix codes list. Here comes the complete overview with all Netflix codes!
