Netflix has a wide variety of content to watch, the point is to find exactly what you are looking for and, above all, to identify some hidden gems. To achieve the latter, there is a little secret: look at the catalog by entering certain codes in the URL.

Each genre and subgenre has its own assigned code, which facilitates navigation and allows you to filter in greater detail what you are looking for. According to the What’s On Netflix site, a full list of movies or shows can be manually accessed for a large number of subcategories involving different types of content.

To access this content, simply enter the following in the URL address: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/, and then add the code in question. By doing so, the page will redirect the user to the specific genre they are looking to explore. So, for example, if you type http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/31574 you will see a list of classic movies.

It should be noted that when entering any subcategory in the search it is possible that the portal indicates that there is no content that responds to these characteristics. This is because the site is adding and changing its proposals, with which what is available varies over time.
