So, you've unlocked Netflix with your VPN and you’re getting bored of watching the same ol' shows already? It might be because you’re not able to find the right content on their library. Netflix has a LOT to offer, but you need a keen eye to find the right movies and shows.

netflix secret codes

Netflix offers certain genres for viewing. Problem is, the subgenres aren’t easy to find. If you’re a Netflix lover, you’ll be happy to know that there are some secret “codes” that can help you find the right content.

All you have to do is go to the Address bar and type www.netflix.com/browse/genre/XXXX

Here "XXXX" is the code of the subgenre. For example, if you’re looking specifically for dark comedies, you can use the code 869.

We have mentioned some secret codes for Netflix. However, since Netflix keeps changing its algorithms, some codes might not work. Here’s the list.
