Netflix cheat codes for unlocking hidden categories

Anton P. | December 1, 2022

Netflix cheat codes help unlock hidden or highly specific categories for films and TV shows. They work as shortcuts for users who know exactly what they want to watch. 

Usually, Netflix users enter an ID code for a specific genre in the web browser Netflix homepage. For instance, the Gal-Pal category has a 1143288 ID, and High Brow content gets accessed via the 3261672 code. You can explore thousands of codes, leading to more abstract or particular categories.

What are Netflix cheat codes? 

Netflix cheat codes can reveal hidden movies and shows on this streaming platform. Essentially, code IDs represent categories of movies and TV shows based on their genre. 

It helps viewers with specific personal tastes find content, like Cult Horror Movies (10944). In other cases, it can be practical, like 90-Minute Movies (81466194). 

In some cases, they might be somewhat general, such as Comedies or Romance Movies. Frequently, Netflix cheat codes correlate with genres can get more specific than that:

  • Easter European Movies - 5254
  • Demon Horror Movies - 31556
  • Movies for Ages 3 to 4 - 6218
  • Spiritual Documentaries - 2760
  • US Courtroom TV Shows - 88876
  • Mind-Bending Sci-Fi TV - 3299061

Netflix codes have been around ever since it was a DVD-based service. Nowadays, the streaming platform continues adding new ID codes. And the full list of IDs has reached over 36 thousand codes. 

Why should you explore codes on Netflix to improve your streaming? 

Streaming services keep track of what you have watched and make recommendations based on such logs. Thus, the genres and categories displayed on the Netflix app or web version might not offer much variety. 

Sometimes, that is an advantage, meaning you get to see titles suiting your tastes. 

However, Netflix cheat codes introduce the idea of having highly-specific categories for even the most unexpected movies and shows. Thus, if you suddenly need to watch Witchcraft & the Dark Arts content, Netflix will present each related title.

So, try exploring the hidden Netflix gems whenever you want to step out of your streaming comfort zone. For example, you might be interested in watching a horror movie tonight. However, you know that you would like to watch something about zombies. 

Luckily, a sub-genre for that is Zombie Horror Movies (75405). If you are more into ghost stories, Netflix cheat codes got you covered: Ghost Story TV Horror (83089).

How to use Netflix secret codes? 

Netflix cheat codes are secret recipes letting viewers discover content that gets buried deep within streaming sites. Some will find new intriguing genres simply by browsing through the available code IDs. 

On browsers:

First, start by logging into your Netflix account to use the Netflix cheat codes. Then, open your browser and type in the following URL: 

You can enter the code linked to one of the hidden subsections. For instance, ID 2308433 will lead you to Adventure TV. 

However, by changing the code to, say, 1626246, you will see titles belonging to the Futuristic Sci-Fi sub-genre. 

On smartphone apps:

You cannot necessarily use Netflix cheat codes on the apps themselves. However, you can type in the name of the sub-genre (such as Futuristic Sci-Fi). 

Then, scroll to the bottom to find a section called “Explore titles related to.” You should see the genre you want. 

On TV apps:

If you use Netflix on your Android TV or Amazon FireStick, you can type in the genre you want via Search. The sub-genres will be on the left side, even if the "Explore titles related to" section is not visible.
