Did you know this? There are secret Netflix codes that unlock thousands of hidden movies and TV shows.
I don't know about you, but sometimes I search Netflix and think, "That's it?" I just can't find anything I want to watch. But there's a trick I just learned.
Turns out Netflix is a little like Big Brother. They're watching, all the time, with an algorithm to learn your preferences. Based on your viewing history, they display shows that might be of interest to you. Which is great, really, unless you want to watch something outside of your normal fare.
Let's say you've been watching When Harry Met Sally non-stop for weeks (because who doesn't love a good Rom Com, right?). Well, if you want to switch it up and watch a military action movie, your choices may be limited. UNLESS, you know that Military Action & Adventure movies are coded as 2125. Search with that code and your options explode.
Here's how it works:
• You have to have a Netflix account.
• Log into your Netflix account on a desktop computer (it might work on other devices...try it out).
• Search with this URL and the genre code at the end: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/2125.
Here are a few more examples:
• Biographical Dramas: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/3179
• Classic War Movies: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/48744
• Classic Westerns: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/47465
• Vampire Horror Movies: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/75804
This opens up a whole new world of entertainment possibilities.
The LIST OF GENRES is on Netflix. Click a genre button and you can see the code in your browser URL address. Try it and let me know what you think. #GlennAtTheMovies
