This simple trick may help you discover new things to watch on Netflix

Netflix is a hub of our favourite TV and films, with new original shows and movies being released constantly.

But with so much content on the streaming platform, it can often be a struggle to choose something new to watch.

However, fortunately one person has shared a simple tip that could save you some time when picking a film or show.

What are the codes?

A Reddit user has shared a guide to secret codes that will allow you to quickly narrow down your Netflix search.

All you have to do is work out what genre of show you’d like to watch.

Codes to watch specific movies and TV shows

When entering the Netflix URL into the web browser, select the code from the list below and add it into the URL, for example, www.netflix.com/browse/genre/xxx which will lead you to a host of movies or TV shows only in that certain genre.

The codes can lead to come very niche areas, for example, instead of browsing Action films, you can narrow it down to just comic books and superhero films (10118) or just martial arts films (8985).

Or if you’re only interested in watching a miniseries you can type in 4814 and for classic TV shows, you can type in 46553 to get a range to choose from.
