Netflix Codes: CHANGE YOUR WATCHING EXPERIENCE
Netflix uses recommendation algorithms to highlight shows and movies that match your profile viewing history. Your preferences may be a little more specific than Trending, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Horror, or Winners titles.
Depending on what you watched, Netflix’s recommendation algorithm may have buried the right movie or show for you. If so, Netflix codes can help you filter the onslaught of content to find more interesting recommendations than usual.
WHAT DO NETFLIX CODES DO?
Netflix codes are based on a numbering system that the streaming service uses to categorize movies and shows by genre and subgenre. Codes can only be redeemed on the Netflix website, not the app.
There are around 20 categories like foreign movies, cartoons as well as classic movies that you can explore. These categories are broken down into more specific subgenres. For example, Horror Movies will be encoded as 8711 and contain 12 additional codes such as Deep Sea Horror Movies, Zombie Horror Movies, Teen Screaming and more.
To visit the webpage for each genre, all you need to do is enter the four-digit code into your web browser after the following address: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/
