This changes everything!

Netflix reportedly have a whole heap of secret codes that allow you to access thousands of sub-genres we didn’t even realise existed, and it doesn’t matter which country you’re in!

All you need to do is change the numerical code at the end of the genre URL when using a computer.

Normally, you can only search for films and TV shows using categories such as comedy or thriller.

However, two unofficial sites have put together the codes you need including one that covers over 27,000 sub-genres.

To access these secret sub-genres, you simply enter the code at the end of www.netflix.com/browse/genre. For example: www.netflix.com/browse/genre/77232 for Asian action movies
