Unlock Netflix’s Hidden Catalogs with These Access Codes for Films and Series

Do you feel like you’ve covered the films and series offered by Netflix? Given how the algorithms work, we can indeed have the impression of a certain redundancy, with suggestions always highlighting content corresponding to our tastes.

But before you give up, there is potentially a solution to get off the beaten track somewhat and watch content less in line with your consumption habits.

If you’re hanging out on the streaming platform and suddenly crave a zombie movie or a sports comedy (two categories that do exist on Netflix), knowing some “secret” codes might just be what you need. It can be useful beyond the interface’s simple “genre” functionality.

Indeed, you should know that films, series, and documentaries are classified into sub-themes, each responding to a code. For example, superhero films are available under code 10118.

To conduct a more detailed thematic search and spend less time scrolling through the thousands of available titles, all you need to do is type a specific code in your browser’s address bar.

To access the “hidden” categories, type netflix.com/browse/genre/, followed by the code.

In simpler terms, you need to enter the code corresponding to the subcategory that interests you directly in the search bar of the Netflix menu. Here, listed by Cosmopolitan, are some of the codes to type.
