Like some of us on the team, are you addicted to the Netflix catalog? So, you have certainly sometimes been confronted with some difficulties to filter the films and series which interest you according to very precise criteria. Indeed, the streaming service is based on a very effective system of suggestions to recommend the contents that correspond to your inclinations. But if you are interested in a very specific category of films, it is not always easy to find your way around.

Obviously, sometimes you want something else. A good big classic of the comedy, a small Italian film, or a good big American blockbuster featuring superheroes. It's possible… with a little hacking!

How to find a Netflix category with a code?

To use the codes from this folder:

  • Launch Netflix on your profile
  • In the address bar, you should see the following URL: www.neflix.com/browse
  • To access a specific category, all you have to do is enter the secret code following the address www.netflix.com/browse/genre  (ex: www.netflix.com/browse/genre/47465)
  • On your TV, just enter the number in the search bar.

The code in question will give you access to all the great Western classics of the platform. Likewise, codes allow access to Christmas movies on Netflix or movies dedicated to Valentine's Day.

Why these Netflix codes?

On Netflix, the categories are rather limited. In all, there are about fifteen categories to filter several thousand films. Difficult to navigate, especially when looking for something specific. Thereby, Netflix engineers have created little secret codes allowing access anyway to other categories and even to normally invisible sub-categories.



There is a series of codes for all genres of Netflix movies, but also for the series in the Netflix catalog. It is also interesting to note that codes for content suitable for anime from the Netflix catalog are available. You can even access movies and series by age group. Pretty cool isn't it?

So if you want to enjoy it, or find your next series to download, use the list of top codes hidden above. There is an even more complete list, but then we have access to really very very precise filters. We are still talking about 27 categories and sub-categories available! You will find this list of secret codes here. Did you use any of these codes on a night when you were lost in the twists and turns of the VOD service? What are your favorite categories?
