If you go through Netflix can often feel like a boring task. This becomes worse if you know the kind of show you want to watch but can’t search.
Well, no more worries, as this brilliant Netflix hack is a genuine lifesaver that will prevent you from wasting those precious minutes finding what you fancy.
Say you are having a chilly and wintery Friday and you fancy spine-chiller of the 1970s variety or a psycho-thriller or just assume something. All you need to do is put in a very particular code, and Netflix will list all the available options.
Once you’ve found out your code – and there are more than 27,002 available here– you just need to log in and then type in http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/XXXX to the web address.
But in the place of XXXX, you have to just mention the five-digit code.
The next time you feel like watching a girl power science fiction flick (Alien) or a visually striking and aesthetic treat (Amelie) just keep in mind that it’s much easier using this hack.
The reason why there appear to be completely random genres, however, is due to the firm’s choice to short films and TV shows into different genres, many that they often create themselves.
Staff at the company tasked with the duty to ‘watch, research, rate, tag, annotate and write analysis for movie and TV content’ and it’s their tag that leads to the classifications.
If the whole thing feels tiresome, just use the next month guide feature on Netflix.
While September turned out to be a quiet month on the streaming platform, except for The Politician’s last-minute release, Netflix coming out all guns blazing in a possible bid to capture the audience from Disney+ and Apple TV’s upcoming launch, including the highly anticipated Breaking Bad film.
