How to use Netflix codes

What are Netflix codes?

You may have probably realized that finding categories on Netflix can be a headache and you can spend the whole duration of a movie looking for categories.

If you’ve previously watched something similar, Netflix will only recommend specific movies and genres.

It’s not really direct when you are trying to find movies, tv shows, documentaries, anime or kids. You can really get frustrated especially if you are not familiar with Netflix interface and this is where Netflix codes come in handy.

Netflix codes are short numerical digits that redirect to specific categories and sub categories, making it easy to find different genres of movies, tv shows and all available categories in Netflix library.

How do I use Netflix codes?

All you have to do is log into your Netflix account and type any of the codes listed below on the search bar. These codes work on any device including TV, PC, mobile devices and tablets.

If you are on a PC, mobile device or tablet, just click on the category name which will then direct you to the selected genre on Netflix.

This is also how you can find hidden movies on Netflix that you cannot find by a normal browse through the interface.
