In these trying times, Netflix has been a life-saver, offering subscribers weeks of wonderful entertainment. However, chances are you may think you've exhausted everything on the streaming service. Well, think again. 

There's a set of Netflix codes that allow you to easily find vast amounts of fresh content that you probably haven't seen yet. These codes create homepages dedicated to certain genres – such as Asian Action Movies or Sci-Fi Thrillers – and offer up some particularly niche choices that you likely didn't know were on Netflix.

To use these codes, all you have to do is add the number to the end of the domain: http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/. To make things even simpler, we've got all the major codes you need below with links – H/T to Ogres-Crypt.

Note: these codes will only work using a web browser. However, once you've seen the movie you want to watch, then you can head over to your platform of choice. And for more viewing suggestions, you can read our pieces on the best Netflix movies and best Netflix shows.
