These secret Netflix codes will unlock a world of hidden categories you may have never known existed.


Netflix has a ton of options of shows and movies to select from, and at times, digging through their catalog can be a little excruciating. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like the selection is poor, it’s just that they have so much to choose from.

So what does someone do when they have a specific genre that they’re only interested in? The secret is category codes. These are codes that were implemented by Netflix engineers, but someone found a way for users to utilize these codes to help them narrow down their search of on-demand videos.

In a nutshell, when browsing Netflix on the web, you get a URL that looks something like www.netflix.com/browse/genre/6839–and if you mess around with the number at the end, you can find some new categories that you may have never known existed. To give you an idea, check out this unofficial list that someone took the liberty of creating.

One thing to keep in mind, since all these codes are unofficial in nature, some of the codes don’t work. It makes sense too because Netflix’s catalog is constantly shifting every month, along with content available for different countries. But for the most part, a lot of the codes are in working order.

Give it a spin and see what you can find in the hidden depths of Netflix’s catalog. Seriously, it’s that easy.
