A report published over the weekend reveals a series of “secret codes” that can be used to bring up eclectic genres on Netflix that would otherwise be hard to find.
The New York Post reports that by tweaking the Netflix URL, “you will be able to unlock hyper-specific genres such as religious documentaries or cerebral French-language dramas from the 1960s.”
The report adds: “To manually explore categories usually hidden by the streaming service, you will need to enter the following URL: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/INSERTNUMBER”
The “INSERTNUMBER” part of the URL has to be replaced with any of the specific codes. Some examples include:
77232 = Asian Action Movies
7700 = Westerns
26 = Mockumentaries
9702 = Screwball Comedies
7627 = Cult Movies
10005 = Religious Documentaries
The Post published a far more extensive list, which you can see by clicking here.
