nexflix genre codes

How do you find and add streaming Netflix movies to your “My List” playlist? Most people will either search for a movie by name or select from those promoted or recommended by the site.

If, however, you have a penchant for a particular category there’s a secret URL construct which will “crack” open a treasure chest of movies you may not otherwise have known about. It works like this www.netflix.com.browse/genre/genre# where genre# is a number e.g. 4089, the number for Foreign Cult Movies. This URL will filter for movies tagged only with that specific genre# http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/4089.

So, where’s the site’s index of genres?

Netflix doesn’t provide one — but, thankfully, the good folks at ogres-crypt.com have assembled an extended list of Netflix’s genres by number and provided hot-links to each of them.
