Hidden Netflix categories: the secret codes and how to enter them to discover series and movies lost in your catalog

1625409851 Hidden Netflix categories the secret codes and how to enter

It often happens that we want to see something in Netflix without knowing very well what but yes we want something of a very specific genre. It is not the same to want to see an action and adventure movie (‘Army of the dead‘, for example) than a spy action movie (the ‘Mission: Impossible’). So we open the platform, in the movies section and we do not know exactly where to navigate among the twenty genres that they offer us.

Yes, there is the action category but everything seems very general and they immediately take you to other pastures. But it turns out Netflix does have an exhaustive classification of each series, film and documentary that it has. Hundreds (thousands) of very specific hidden categories that we are going to learn how to access. Be careful, this from our browser.

What are hidden categories

Not another thing, but it must be recognized that Netflix refines (another thing is that it hits what we want) a lot when recommending according to what we are looking for. It does this thanks to a categorization that shows its paw every time we enter the file of an item in the catalog.

For example, if we want to see series or movies related to ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the world‘, your file takes us to “Martial Arts Movies”, “Youth Movies”, “Action & Adventure”. More specific subgenres that do not appear in the main index of the platform. An internal categorization that is very useful when delving into the vast catalog of the publisher.

How to access hidden Netflix categories

Thus, little by little, we can index thousands of hidden categories that we can access in a very simple way. Be careful, this is only possible from the browser since we must be able to put the following URL in the address bar:

  • http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/NUMBER

And where does it say NUMBER replace it with the number of the desired category. For example. If instead of wanting to see a horror movie in general (8711), we want to see a slasher (8646) we should put http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/8646 in the bar of our browser to access tapes like ‘Happy death day‘or Chucky’s.

Then we leave you with a small list of hidden categories with their respective numbers. There are many more and listed as Netflix Streaming by Alternate Genres it has almost four thousand indexed. Enjoy!
