How To Maximise Your Netflix Subscription In 2022!




When many of us are cancelling subscriptions to entertainment services, with some 200,000 subscribers dropping Netflix in the last few weeks, it's essential to be sure that you are making full use of the services you are still paying for.


Netflix is a good example, I for one am someone who seems to have seen everything on offer to watch, or perhaps I'm just super picky, and so Netflix has been on my cancellation list, but did you know that Netflix has a secret menu system, allowing you to get a massively more extensive number of programmes to watch, by selecting movies by genre.


Perhaps you fancy watching a gangster thriller movie? You could just go to the thrillers genre and scroll until you find a gangster movie, or you could go here: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/31851, and now your screen will be filled with only movies that are gangster related and nothing else! Pretty cool, huh!


So how did I just manage that? Netflix categorises all their movies internally by using numerical code. The gangster code was 31851, which you can see at the end of the link I posted above. To view a specific genre, you would then find the code and enter the first part of the link - http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre and then enter the code after the word genre in the website address - so here it's code 31851 - this will then allow you to view that whole genre.


The bad news is that this only works on the website and won’t be available on phones (unless you go via the phone browser and not the Netflix app), NOW TV boxes or the Amazon Firestick, so you will need to watch your movie on a desktop, or laptop, or via a tablet, that you can use an internet browser on. Basically, it doesn't' work on the app.



Below is an alphabetical list of the movie genres you can find! Some may be IP address or regionally sensitive, which may not work for everyone, but the majority will work perfectly.
