The Netflix secret codes are not an urban legend nor a conspiracy theory. The codes exist, and they are the key to unlocking a lot of hidden content within the Netflix platform. This article tells you what the codes are and how to use them.

Sneak peek at Netflix secrets

No, it’s not a conspiracy theory, there are secret Netflix codes, and if you know them, you’ll get access to hidden TV shows, films, and other content. Furthermore, these secret codes are easier to use from a computer (instead of a mobile device). You just need to know they exist and the correct way to use them. So join us as we tell you all about Netflix’s best-kept secrets!

Imagine a regular day when you open your Netflix account. You see the same recommendations you saw yesterday, last week, and last month. And no, you’re not feeling any more inclined to see those movies or shows than the previous hundred times you had them recommended to you. Instead, you want something new or exciting that you had not thought of before. We know how you’re feeling and have the exact thing you need: The Netflix secret codes.

Yes, the Netflix video streaming platform has a set of secret codes that will get you to places where your standard menus won’t — or not very quickly, anyway. Moreover, the codes are the key to unlocking several Netflix subcategories that are unavailable otherwise. So, if you want such access, you first need the secret code. But, not to worry, we’ll give them all to you. And then you’ll have an even more comprehensive catalog of fantastic films, and TV shows you didn’t imagine were around.

So what are those Netflix secret codes?

You surely already noticed that the Netflix app gives you a lot of recommendations as you browse around it. So you can dig around movies or TV shows only. Or you can dig a little deeper and delve into genre-specific content. It is fascinating as you discover the platform’s potential. But then it turns old very quickly. So boring. It just reminds you of how fast you’ve run out of options.

However, the Netflix video streaming service offers more than 15,000 titles worldwide. So the chances are you have seen only a tiny fraction of that vast catalog. Even if we go more specific, the about 6,300 titles in the US Netflix library (the largest one) are still more than you could see in a year of binge-watching.

You can see other Netflix catalogs by connecting to the service with a VPN to cheat the system into thinking you’re a user from another country –more on that later.

But regardless of the variety you can have as a Netflix user of any country or a Netflix user with a top-notch VPN (which gives you access to the library of any country you want), remember that there remains hidden Netflix content for you to discover. And the Netflix secret codes are the treasure maps you’ll need to find it.

Using the Netflix secret codes

Here’s how you can use the Netflix secret codes if you have a smart TV:

  1. Open your TV’s Netflix app.
  2. Go to “Search.”
  3. Write the code in the search bar.
  4. Look at the results.

If, on the other hand, you prefer to enjoy your Netflix from a Windows 10 system, you need to do something else. So if you have a Windows 10 computer and a Smart TV, this is what you must do:

  1. Your Smart TV must be Wi-Fi enabled. Also, it needs to be in the same local network as your Windows 10 computer. And both devices need to be Bluetooth-enabled.
  2. On your Windows computer, look for the “Connect” application. Ensure that both of your devices support “Miracast.”
  3. Take your Smart TV’s remote, press “Home” or “Input,” and select “Screen mirroring” or “Project,” or however your particular TV calls it.
  4. Now go to your Windows PC, and in the settings menu, pick “Devices.”
  5. Choose “Add Bluetooth or other devices.”
  6. Find “Wireless display or dock” and select it.
  7. Find your Smart TV on the following menu. 
  8. That’s it, and now you can cast Netflix to your Smart TV from your computer.

So there you go; now you can start using the secret codes to navigate your Netflix.
