Netflix Has A Ton Of Secret Movie Categories And Here’s How To Access Them

Make the most out of your movie watching.

Let’s face it, it can be pretty overwhelming to sort through the vast number of movies and TV shows available on Netflix. While there is a lot of great stuff on there, there are also a lot of movies and TV shows that a person should never spend time watching.

The good news is that Netflix has a secret master list of categories that are much more niche than the big buckets like Action, Drama, Documentaries, etc.  As first discovered by What’s On Netflix, there is a way to access all these hidden categories to help you figure out what to watch.

Using your browser, go to the following url and swap out the ### with the code in the list below.


For example, 25804 is code for military TV shows.  So just go to http://go.redirectingat.com/?id=88890X1542043&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.netflix.com%2Fbrowse%2Fgenre%2F25804 and you will get a list of all the TV shows that fall under that category. (Note: You will have to sign into your account to access these.)

Some Interesting Categories

Some of the more interesting and useful categories I found are: Zombie Horror Movies: 75405, Quirky Romance: 36103, Dark Comedies: 869, Disney: 67673, Political Thrillers: 10504, and TV Comedies: 10375.

Movies for ages 5 to 7: 5455
