Netflix has a lot of shows that might not show up on your home page thanks to what you watch normally. Here’s how you can unlock a bigger treasure trove of content

We are certain you have been watching a LOT of Netflix lately and you might have just exhausted everything you think this streaming platform has to offer. Don't worry, we have news for you.

Netflix has a whole list of secret codes that you can use to find movies and shows, according to genres, to watch. How did you not know about these films? Well, your Netflix home page is customised according to movies and shows you watch normally. Genres you don't watch often enough will not be shown unless you specifically search for it with movie or show names.

However, there is a way to navigate to content that fly below our radar. Suppose you aren't a fan of musicals in the least, but you really want to watch one all of a sudden? Or classic horror movies, or anime?

The Netflix arsenal is MUCH larger than you think it is. So, here's what you need to do:

You need to type in - www.netflix.com/browse/genre/XXXX(code) on your browser. The XXXX should be replaced with the code corresponding to the genre you want to watch.

Here's a list of codes we think you might need. If you want more, there is a longer list here.

Mind you, this works when you access Netflix through the browser and not the app.
