So you can use categories on Netflix and save time filtering content searches

Having a streaming video service is something more and more common in many homes. From a time of scarcity we have passed to times of overabundance that lead us to have to carry out a selective control of all those platforms to which we are subscribed. All of them offer content of various kinds, but it is perhaps Netflix, which has a more varied offer, so much so that sometimes it is difficult to find what we are looking for. A much easier process thanks to codes and categories from Netflix.

Yes, some may think that Netflix, like HBO, Disney + … has its own search engine. The magnifying glass icon makes it easier for us to find what we are looking for, but there is another even more effective system. It is about accessing the hidden categories of Netflix with the aforementioned codes. A system that saves us valuable time if we want to filter results.

Categories save time and work

Through Netflix categories and codes what we do is that the system “filters” by itself and saves us having to leave our eyes to find what we are looking for. Each item in the catalog has a category and these are easily accessible with this guide.

When we see something in particular, Netflix then offers suggestions related to categorizing that we just saw. The problem is that the result is not always as expected and the contents do not correspond. And this is where category search comes in.

An option that, yes, you can only use if you access Netflix through a browser (the application does not work), since you have to enter a URL manually and then add the corresponding code.

Once inside the browser, it does not matter if it is mobile, tablet, TV, PC … you have to write the following URL in the address bar:

http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/NÚMERO

The word NUMBER we have to change it and put in its place number of the category desired according to the list that you have under these lines. Thus, if we want to see a movie for the whole family but determining that it is only for children from 5 to 7 years old, we will have to write:

http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/5455

Said how to proceed, these are some of the hidden categories that we can find, but they are not all. There are huge listings like Netflix Streaming by Alternate Genres It offers extreme customization with almost 4,000 categories.
