You might think you’ve exhausted everything there is to see on Netflix.
However, chances are there’s probably a vast amount of movies and TV shows you’ve never come across while browsing the streaming service’s extensive library.
Unless you spend hours scrolling through, the highlighted titles are based on the previous things you’ve seen or added to your list.
But if you fancy watching something from a genre that’s not available in Netflix’s limited selection, you won’t find what you’re looking for that easy.
It turns out that there are actually thousands of codes that will make browsing Netflix a whole lot easier.
These codes correlate to some pretty specific genres ranging from “Romantic Foreign Movies” to “B Horror Movies,” and they’ve been placed in one place for you to browse through.
To visit each genre’s website, all you have to do is enter the four-digit code after the following address in your web browser: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/
It’s worth noting that this only works on the website and will not be available on phones, NOW TV boxes or the Amazon Firestick.
The friendly folks over at ogres-crypt put together the comprehensive list of genres, but you can also find a wide selection below (and a full list of everything that’s going to be removed in May 2022 here).
