Secret Netflix Code To Unlock Hidden Movies And TV Shows

Watch Netflix with your family members


Everyone who uses Netflix knows that the streaming service recommends movies and TV shows if you’ve previously watched something similar to it. It is based on a complicated algorithm that uses reams of data about users’ preference and viewing habits which is made possible because the streaming service has sorted its movie and TV show catalogues into thousands of separate genres to help mix and match to your movie taste-buds. It’s no secret that Netflix has a vast amount of viewing options which can be pretty unnerving. Aside from the contents recommended on our home screen, it is not easy to find or explore all that is there from your favourite genres. Won’t it be awesome if there’s a way to access every Indian movies or Korean dramas or Disney movies that are available on Netflix? Or really specific like campy B-horror movie from the 1960s, kind of specific? Now that’s the kind of sorting we want.
