#EntertainmentTech Netflix Category Codes: What Are They and How Do You Use Them?

Netflix category codes make finding new movies and series much easier.

Sometimes when we look and try to discover something new, it may seem that we have already seen it all. It can happen that sometimes many of the recommended materials use the same stories, the same genre, the same actors, and sometimes even predictable plots.

This is because Netflix recommendations are determined by what you have viewed or added to your list most recently. We have all experienced a shortage of interesting content to watch. While browsing through the vast library that the streaming service provides, there is a good chance that you will find a large number of movies and TV series that you have never seen before.

That being said, here are some of the many Netflix secret codes available that you can use depending on the genre you want to watch. These codes include a lot of content, be it TV shows, movies, dramas, documentaries, sports shows, and more.

How to use Netflix category codes

To access the Netflix category codes, you just need to go to this URL:

  • First enter this URL: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/

  • Don’t press it right away just yet. The second step is to choose the secret code of the genre you want to watch.

  • Then paste this at the end of the provided URL.

For example, I’m going to watch any action/adventure related content that has the code 1365. I’ll first type the provided URL and then paste the code at the end.

What makes it so: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/1365

Other examples:

Remember, URL plus code, then you get it just by hitting enter.

It is important to remember that not all codes are available to every user. There is a possibility that certain codes will not be displayed to users in certain regions or IP addresses. Maybe your IP address or location is preventing it from working properly.
