Netflix has become a lifesaver for many viewers over the past couple of years, giving us all something else to focus on in the wake of the pandemic and its subsequent lockdowns.

How to find hidden films and TV shows on Netflix
As all dedicated binge-watchers will know, there is an awful lot of content to get through on Netflix, and you could spend days just searching through it all – without actually watching anything.
True, the service offers some generic categories such as ‘Action’ and ‘Anime’ to help out – but these don’t always filter the results in that much detail.
However, help is at hand – as a number of codes have been generated, seeing each one link to a particular genre.
To help you though, we’ve listed them below – so if you want something a little more niche, such as military action and adventure, or movies for a younger audience, just follow the relevant links.
You should note that this method of finding hidden content only works on web browsers.
So if you do want to watch something on your TV, phone or tablet, you’ll have to explore the secret code categories from other devices before picking a movie and searching for that specific title within the Netflix app.
