Netflix hack unlocks 211 hidden genres full of movies and series

Wow, this Netflix hack that opens up a ton of genres and categories is a must. Just trying is fun. Remember this list, because you will use it again.

Is there life after death? Is there a higher power? Why are we here? All interesting questions in life, but you probably prefer an answer to the question: what am I going to watch on Netflix? The range is now so big that you don’t see the hidden gems anymore because of all the new series. Fortunately, there are ways to streamline your search routine, like this handy trick.

As you know, you can search by genre within Netflix. Very useful, but the number of options you get is quite limited. Fortunately, there is a way to search more specifically within the huge range of the streaming service. Beneath the surface there are still a couple hundred categories that you just can’t find. With this cheat you can still access it.

The hidden genres of Netflix

From action comedies to classic westerns and from cult films to mockumentaries. You can find it all through a good trick. For this you are going to the website of Netflix, as you are used to. Then you mess with the URL. Behind you put /browse/genre/#####. Put the category code you are looking for in parentheses and voilà!
