Netflix- their secret codes- now you can find thousands of hidden movies

For any Netflix junkie, here is the list for you. I found this over at The Telegraph UK. The list may not be as specific as to the U.S. Book mark the page and don’t worry about codes. Not the complete list but a good start. When Netflix first came out it was easy to find the top whatever films. Now it is once more easy to find them. Something a bit different for a Saturday.

Netflix Everywhere Comparisons

Netflix’s incredibly niche, personalised subgenres have long captivated movie nerds, from “Steamy Crime Movies from the 1970s” to “Period Pieces About Royalty Based on Real Life”.

The genres, based on a complicated algorithm that uses reams of data about users’ viewing habits to recommend exactly what a particular user is into, number in the tens of thousands.

How it works

If you’re logged into Netflix, enter http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/XXXX  but

“XXXX” is a series of digits – 1089 is “Mind-bending Movies”, for example; while 354 is “Movies Starring Matthew McConaughey” – currently a genre of one film.

Not all numbers will result in a subgenre, and given Netflix’s ever-changing algorithms, they might move around every now and then, while there may be regional differences meaning that some codes don’t work.

Codes for the main genres are available Here

Here are links to a list of even more.
