Content that is suggested by Netflix’s algorithm is helpful when you rate and watch a lot of videos. It doesn’t take long for the streaming service to start recommending videos to watch that align to your tastes. But not all automated algorithms are perfect. There are a lot of hidden categories that you’re missing out on that may be of interest. To get the most out of the service, users should learn to use the Netflix secret codes list. It takes a couple of seconds and consists of only a few steps.
1. Log Into Netflix
Enter your username and password on the webpage. You can switch to your preferred profile, but it isn’t necessary.
2. Click On The Address Bar
In your preferred browser, click on the address bar so that the entire address is highlighted. Anything you type afterwards will replace the current address.
3. Type In The Category URL
With the address highlighted, type in http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/ without the quotes. Don’t click away just yet, because this is where it gets interesting.
4. Type In Your Preferred Category
Use the code list from http://ogres-crypt.com/public/NetFlix-Streaming-Genres2.html to find a specific category. To do this, type in the numbers that represent each category. So for Westerns, the full address would be http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/7700.
5. Press Enter And Enjoy!
You can use this trick as many times as possible to get a preferred category. The codes are not region locked, so anyone can use it. If you find a category that you really love, consider bookmarking it for future use.
