IF YOUR kids have run out of stuff to watch on Netflix, these secret codes will help you out.
They unlock hidden categories of content that you can use to hone your search for something new to binge.
Each category is filed under a unique number that you can stick into the Netflix URL to view.
It means that by making a small tweak to the URL, you can unlock a whole host of content that you might have missed out on otherwise.
And while not all of them are suitable for children, a few can help you narrow down what you’re looking for.
For instance, using the codes, you can search Netflix for “animal tales”, “education for kids”, “movies for ages two to four”, and more.
To manually explore categories usually hidden by the streaming service, enter the following URL: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/INSERTNUMBER
Then, replace the “INSERTNUMBER” component of the URL with one of the codes needed to access a genre.
Of course, they only work if you’re accessing Netflix via a web browser – hard luck if you’re on a smartphone, tablet or TV.
We have listed codes for family/children’s movies to get you started. A more extensive list can be found here.
The number is the code you need to pop in at the end of the URL:
- Animal Tales: 5507
- Children & Family Movies: 783
- Classic Comedies: 31694
- Classic Musicals: 32392

Hidden Netflix feature announced
Earlier this month, Netflix added a special audio feature that TV and movie fans will love.
It’s called spatial audio, and creates a 3D soundscape that makes soundtracks and noises much more immersive.
The concept is tricky to imagine until you hear it, but it’s a cracking feature and totally free for Netflix subscribers.
And it’s available right now in two different forms – accessed using separate methods.
“Netflix spatial audio helps to translate the cinematic experience of immersive audio to any stereo,” said Netflix.
“So the work creators do to bring you into the story happens no matter what device you use to watch Netflix.”
If you do not have surround sound speakers, spatial audio is enabled automatically when watching a compatible TV show or movie.
If you have surround sound speakers, watching TV shows and movies in 5.1 surround sound or Dolby Atmos is recommended.
