Many people have considered Netflix as their source of online videos and the number of viewers is expected to rise as the online streaming service expands to more than 200 countries. Since the company has been introducing more of its own first-party content to the service, most people are having a hard time looking for what tickles their interest.

Luckily, viewers can use a trick that allows them to browse hidden genres on Netflix that involves a secret code, which the company's own engineers use, according to Redmond Pie. With this, they would be able to narrow down the contents on the service to help them find what they're looking for. Here's how.

Try to go through Netflix using a web browser and it will show that its URL ends with a different code that depends on a category a viewer is browsing and if the code is changed to some particular combinations of numbers, they will see some sub-genres that are normally beyond their access by using the usual menu systems. For example, B-horror movies would be netflix.com/browse/genre/8195 and kids' movies, which are based on books, would be netflix.com/browse/genre/10056.

However, these codes don't work in all countries as it depends where the viewers are browsing Netflix from. Don't worry though, because sites like whatsonnetflix.com have the list of codes.

According to MacRumors, Netflix signed up a total of 7.1 million new subscribers globally, which is nearly two million more compared to what analysts have predicted regardless the price raise during the Q4 2017. The company said that it planned to launch over 1,000 hours of original programming this year from 600 hours last year and it also revealed that it had signed a deal with Jerry Seinfeld to stream "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" including two new stand-up specials.
