This Netflix Hack Will Change Your Life

March 9, 2016

Mind. Blown.

Netflix and I have become inseparable this year. What started as a fling has turned into a solid ‘seeing each other every night’ relationship.

But sometimes Netflix can be a bit overwhelming, what with its seemingly endless content and suggestions; it’s the equivalent of a chatty girlfriend who can talk for hours but fail to get to the point.

Often I know exactly what I want, but it’s hard to make Netflix understand. If I am in the mood for a documentary that will shock me but make me laugh at the same time, or an indie movie that’s based on a true story but isn’t a biography, it can take a while to find what I need… that is, until now.

I present to you the complete list of Netflix categories and genre numbers. On this site, you’ll find hundreds of very specific genres, such as ‘Faith and Spirituality Movies’ or ‘British Gay and Lesbian Dramas’, making it so much easier to find what you want to binge-watch.

All you have to do is find the number of your desired genre and add it to the end of this URL: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/NUMBERHERE

If that’s still too time-consuming for you, download the Super Browse extension, which will add a category tab to your Netflix home screen so you can scroll through all the hidden gems.

Just imagine all the things you can do with the time you save using this hack – not to mention, you’ll be able to watch even more episodes of your fave show. And these kick-ass feminist shows.

You’re welcome.
