This hack will change the way you use Netflix forever!!

NETFLIX

So much binge watching… 

One of the hardest parts of Netflix viewing is actually deciding what to watch. You will spend far too long trying to pick a potential movie which often leads you to simply giving up. 

But our dear friends, the solution is simple. Let us introduce you to a way in which you can ‘hack’ Netflix.

It all has to do with secret category codes added by Netflix engineers which will help you narrow down you viewing choices. According to Yahoo the key to unlocking these codes is in the URL. “Since the streaming platform’s engineers utilize hidden codes to label all the categories (even the ones you don’t have access to) if you know the code, you can include it on the end of the Netflix URL and this will take you directly to the type of movies/ shows you really want to watch.” 

For example, if you add “6839” to the end of the Netflix URL, it will take you right to the documentaries genre. http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/6839

Now if you’re wondering what ‘hidden’ categories we are talking about here is a handful, movies for ages 0 to 2, classic war movies, sports comedies, B-horror movies, cult horror movies, social issue dramas, showbiz dramas, quirky romance and hundreds more!!

If you thought, we were kidding check out the full list here.
