Netflix codes to unlock movie categories


Recommended Posts

As we all know; Netflix uses complex algorithms to categorise and deliver suggestions to the end-users, which sometimes leave us struggling to find the right movie, or we end up continually hitting the same results.


There is a way to only search for certain types of films and shows and ignore Netflix’s algorithm. The trick is in the URL. For example, the numbers at the end of this link http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/6839 designate a certain category. There are online resources that list all of the codes available; one example is http://ogres-crypt.com/public/NetFlix-Streaming-Genres.html


Don’t expect all of the codes work, as some content categories might not be available any longer and Netflix do have a habbit of changing this on a regular basis.
