What are Netflix codes?

Chances are you’ve spent plenty of time this year scrolling through Netflix’s extensive collection of films and TV shows - you might even think you’ve seen everything the service has to offer.

But because it’s library is so large, there are lots of shows and movies that you probably won’t have come across - but you can access these using special codes.

When you enter a special code, you’ll be able to filter Netflix’s library to show you content that is in a certain genre or category.

How do I access the codes?

In order to access Netflix’s specially curated Christmas content, you’ll need to be watching the streaming service on an internet browser - you can do this on your computer, or on most Smart TVs.

Once you’re on the browser version of Netflix, you’ll need to navigate to the genre section at netflix.com followed by the correct code.

Once you’re there, you can use one of the following special codes to access its corresponding selections.
