Tired of endless scrolling on Netflix without finding the movie you fancy? Been there, done that! The frustration is real. But what if I told you there's a better way to navigate the vast sea of movies? Say hello to the Netflix Genre section – your ticket to cinematic bliss! Let me guide you through a game-changing strategy that goes beyond the typical genre search


If you fancy a comedy, look at comedies; if you fancy a shoot 'em up, then action is your best genre choice. But what if there was a better way to search for something, by having a full list of all the available genres to look at!


Yup, you guessed it, there is! 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 simply 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!


Follow a step-by-step guide to accessing specific genres. I'll walk you through the process, making it easy for you to find that perfect movie night choice. Your Netflix experience is about to level up!


So, how did I manage that? Netflix categorises all its movies internally by using numerical codes. The gangster code was 31851, which you can see at the end of the link I posted above. To be able to view a specific genre, you would then find out the code and enter the first part of the link - http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre and then after the / enter the code, e.g. 31851 - this will then allow you to view that genre.


Before you get too excited, there's a catch. This trick works like a charm on desktops, laptops, and tablets with browsers. Unfortunately, it's a no-go on phones, NOW TV boxes, or Amazon Firestick (unless you opt for the browser over the app). But hey, it's a small sacrifice for a vast world of movie options!
