Dive deeper into Netflix.
Netflix and chill has just been upgraded. The streaming giant has a catalog deeper than most users care to dive into. Most of us just skim through the categories that we enjoy most, or throw on reruns of a series that has high replay value. Netflix may not have invented binge-watching, but the company helped make it a cultural norm. Now, a new set of secret codes will only intensify your binging, and open up your world.
These secret codes allow users to search through hyper-specific genres to unlock hidden movies and shows. According to People, this list of 76,000 subgenres groups Netflix's catalog by genre, subgenre, sub-subgenre, director, actors, language, topic, decade, and relevant adjective. For example, you can search Cerebral Foreign Movies from the 1970s, Critically-acclaimed Gritty Independent Crime Dramas, Dramas starring Reese Witherspoon, Goofy Chinese Movies, Italian Horror Movies from the 1970s, and an extensive list of other obscure categories.
Unlocking the content is easy, and reminiscent of simpler times when GameShark devices were a necessary gaming accessory. Users just need to login into their Netflix account and enter http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/XXXX into the browser’s toolbar. The Xs should be replaced with the appropriate codes from the list. Happy binging.
