Netflix Secret Codes – How to Unlock Tons of Hidden TV Shows and Movies!

Everyone loves Netflix, but many people don’t know that they offer a LOT more content than you can see when you sign in to your account. There are many sub-genres that you can only find with secret codes.

Normally Netflix will just show you recommendations based on what you have watched that are based on your watch/viewing history. So that can make it hard to find new shows, as their recommendation engine won’t recommend you a lot of diverse new content.

It turns out there are some tricks to find all of these shows. And before we get into the details, one suggestion – try the tricks we show you below on your computer.

Usually we do this and then add a ton of things to our “My List” and then they will be in your queue when you login into your account to watch.

What are Netflix Secret Codes?

The problem with browsing on Netflix is the categories to navigate the site are very general – terms like “Fantasy” or “Romance” or “Comedies” are very broad and general categories. In fantasy for example, there are many sub categories such as Anime Fantasy or Classic SciFi and Fantasy. In comedies for example, there are slapstick comedies versus teen comedies and so on.

Instead of spending hours looking for something to watch, these subcategory codes are the secret to finding what you want!
