Netflix has been hiding tons of categories from you. Yep. If you’re not frequently on Netflix (like we are), this could be your goldmine for finding more shows and movies to watch. But if you have been on Netflix a lot… these categories aren’t exactly hidden per say… just not as visible unless you’re hardcore looking for the next perfect movie or show to watch.

Netflix Hidden Categories

Source: netflixupdate.com

First off, if you’re new to Netflix, it maybe time to sign up for a trial and ditch cable (you’ll also save a lot of money in doing so!). Netflix starting membership prices is only $7.99 per month for their basic plan which includes free streaming on any device plus you’ll get free trial on Netflix for a month! You’ll have options to upgrade for a higher monthly rate if you want ultra HD/HD available to stream.

Secondly, if you frequent Netflix often, you’ll have already discovered these “hidden” categories, which is really just subcategories you can easily navigate once you click on a main genre via their ‘Browse’ menu. To do so just click Browse > Category of your choice > On the drop down menu next to the main genre, you’ll have access to all available subgenres. Easy right?

Lastly, if you really don’t want to have to go through all that to find a specific category, you can refer to this link and table below to get to your preferred category faster (there are also additional hidden category you can not find manually in the mix). Whoo, efficiency right?

URL: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/####

Where the #### part of the link is, replace that text with one of the following codes below to browse a specific subgenre. This should work for Netflix in every region. Some other websites have stated due to Netflix’s redesign, this may not work but we’ll list a clickable link on the popular categories for you to check (less work for you!).

I wanna be the very best like no one ever was. Couponing is my real test, to cut them is my cause. I will travel across the land, searching far and wide. Each store to understand, the discounts that's inside.
