Netflix cheat codes for finding hidden gems

Anton P. | March 29, 2021

Netflix cheat codes are useful at uncovering content that awaits deeper within the platform. They help you go beyond the generic genre categories that present seemingly never-ending lists. How? Well, Netflix has thousands of sub-genres that can contain highly-specific or niche titles. It identifies each micro-category with a unique number that you can use to access it. Thus, apply Netflix cheat codes to discover content that might not necessarily fall on your radar naturally.

What are Netflix cheat codes?

Netflix cheat codes are useful for narrowing down your selection to highly-specific content. You might already know that Netflix groups its shows and movies into genres. On your personalized homepage, you might already notice some of them. Which genres you get to see front-and-center depend on your viewing history. In some cases, they might be somewhat general, such as Comedies or Romance Movies. However, Netflix 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 cheat codes allow you to reach such sub-genres without having to dig through the more generic libraries. There are thousands of smaller categories nailing down the nature of the content or the intended audience. To be more specific, reports suggest that there are approximately over 76 thousand micro-genres. While you won’t need all of them, pinpointing specific titles straight away can be helpful.

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, there is a sub-genre for that: 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 cheat codes?

On browsers:

First, you need to sign in to your Netflix account to use the Netflix cheat codes. Then, open your browser and type in the following URL:

  • netflix.com/browse/genre/2308433

You can substitute the last number to other Netflix cheat codes. For instance, the code 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 then.

On TV apps:

If you use Netflix on your TV, you can type in the genre you want via Search. Then, while you won’t see the “Explore titles related to” section, the sub-genres should be listed among the choices on the left side.
