Netflix is now available in 190 countries including Bangladesh, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands. But what happens when you’re sick of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and need something new to watch when you’re on vacation?
Netflix usually requires users to search for films and shows by exact titles or generic genres (dramas, comedies, etc.). But there’s a hidden way of working around this. The URL for something basic like “Documentaries” is http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/6839, but if you change the numerical code at the end, you can find “Controversial Foreign Movies” (2273), or “Critically-Acclaimed Gritty Independent Crime Dramas” (3352), or “Feel-Good Sports Movies For Ages 8 to 10” (855). That last one has Air Bud: Strikes Back.
Now when you and your family spend all night trying to decide which movie to watch, at least your indecision will be super specific.
