To enjoy these and more shows on Netflix, here are some tips and tricks you can use to make the most of your subscription.
Use a VPN to access show lists from different countries.
While Netflix boasts a vast library, most of the content is geo-restricted due to copyright agreements.
If you enjoy TV shows famous in the UK, a VPN can ensure you access Netflix categories specific to the UK market. Once you install a VPN, you can connect to a UK server location using your VPN.
A VPN makes it possible for you to unlock location-specific Netflix content.
Learn a new language while enjoying your show
You can install a chrome extension to enable language learning on Netflix. This free extension comes with subtitles in the language you want to learn and the original language. The extension also comes with a popup directory with suggestions of important words to learn in the language of choice. The extension is compatible with macOS and Windows.
Use secret codes to unlock hidden genres.
If you are tired of watching the same genre recommendations from Netflix, you can explore a wider range of genres hidden in the Netflix system using secret codes. Each genre has a specific ID number/code you can use to access the content directly by typing the number in the URL https://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/IDNumber. For instance, if you want to watch the ‘military movies based on real-life’ category, the ID code is 1216900. Therefore, the URL will be https://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/1216900. There are more than 300 hidden categories on Netflix, and these codes give you access to all of them.
With the rights tools, tips and tricks, Netflix offers limitless streaming possibilities. The tips and tricks on this guide will enhance your viewing experience on the most-watched streaming service in the world.
We are very late to the party and only got Netflix just before Christmas so it will be a while before we exhaust all the recommendations. But that’s a great tip about the secret codes, thank you, I’ll book mark that for future reference!
There is really so much content to consume on Netflix, it also takes me awhile to get through recommendations while the site keeps churning out new shows and movies to watch often. But yup, those secret codes will be worth a try!
Wow! Thank you for these tips, Liz!
Happy streaming Ruth!
Thank you for the recommendations and tips! Yung Shutter Island pa lang napanood ko, will try to check the others too. 🙂
