Netflix thousands secret: You know that horrible, rug-pulled-out-from-under-you, life-spinning-out-of-control feeling when you’ve poured the wine and settled into the couch and opened the Netflix…and realized there’s nothing you want to watch? It’s all okay now, thanks to this genius Netflix surfing hack.
Netflix thousends secret
Gizmodo notes that the trick only works if you’re watching Netflix through your web browser, but when you do, you’ll notice the URL is something like netflix.com/browse/genre/10757. That number at the end of the web address is the key that unlocks tens of thousands of super-specific genres you can check out.
All you have to do is enter a new number code and you’ll find a new genre to watch. There is one website and one Google spreadsheet that have listed all of Netflix’s ridiculously long list of genres, from Cerebral Foreign Movies from the 1970s (669) to Irreverent Independent Mockumentaries (4553).
