Key Takeaways: Netflix Genre & Category Codes

  • Netflix has a list of genre codes that can be used to show all the titles in a specific category.
  • To use a code, all you need to do is add it at the end of a special URL:
  • Due to Netflix’s regional restrictions, some codes might not work in certain countries. However, you can get past geoblocks with a reliable Netflix VPN, like ExpressVPN.

Netflix has enough movies and shows in its library to cause a popcorn shortage at your local store. However, when you’re scrolling through Netflix’s homepage, you might feel like you’re not seeing the full package. Well, that’s because you’re not. The only way to see everything Netflix has to offer is to use this Netflix secret codes list.

Netflix uses an algorithm to customize each user’s experience. It collects data about a user’s interests and what they’ve watched. Netflix then uses that data to recommend similar shows and movies the user might like.

This means your front page is only showing a portion of Netflix’s library. Thankfully, you can sneak past its limited selection and access complete genre lists using specific codes. In this article, we’ll list all the available Netflix codes and show you how to use them.

Note that regional restrictions on Netflix means that some codes might not work in your country. However, a good virtual private network (VPN) can get past those geoblocks — though you’ll need one of the best VPNs that can bypass the Netflix VPN ban.

    Some readers have pointed out that they could not get certain codes to work. We tested all of the codes and can confirm they are all up to date, as long as you are connected to Netflix via the U.S.

How to Use Netflix Secret Codes

Before we start, note that the below method does not work on the Netflix app — you have to use the website. Thankfully, the process is even easier for app users: Simply copy and paste the code into the Netflix search bar and you’re done!

Alternatively, once you’ve found something you like in the browser, you can add it to “my list” and watch it in the app. 

If you prefer watching Netflix on your laptop, the steps are still super easy to follow. We’ll show you how it works with screenshots.

  1. Find a Code and Enter It at the End of the Netflix Genre Browsing URL

    Find the code for the content category you want to browse in our list below. Once you’ve found it, enter the code at the end of this Netflix URL: Press enter. You’ll now see all the shows and movies associated with that genre.

  2. Find a Show or Movie You Want to Watch

    Browse through the category and find something you want to watch. If you click a title and scroll down, you can then click on other genres, cast members, the director and so on to bring up other titles you might like.

Netflix Secret Codes List

In this section, we’ll list all available Netflix codes according to category. Each category has a general code, which we’ve popped in the heading, and subcategories listed below. 

We have tested all of the codes and we’re positive that they all work, though with a small caveat. Netflix’s content differs by country, so whether the codes work and what content is included in the category will depend on where you’re located.

It’s easy to unblock content from different regions, though, and you could use a reliable streaming VPN to get past geoblocks like this. If you want a few quick suggestions, ExpressVPN is our top recommended VPN for Netflix, followed closely by NordVPN.
