Working from home? So are we, and it's boring. Yes, quarantining ones' self in the midst of a pestilential outbreak of disease is the right and responsible thing to do. It's also mind-numbing quiet; hammering out emails with nothing for company except the grim silence of a lonely apartment. So what do we all do? We turn on some background noise, and today that usually means a streaming service like Netflix. 

There are two ways to find content on Netflix. The first is by browsing the suggested selections provided by Netflix's proprietary Recommendation Engine, a marvelous example of machine learning technology in and of itself. Or, if you're watching from your browser, you can use the cheat codes.

Netflix groups movies into very specific genres, but they can be difficult to find from the user interface. Luckily there is a cool trick that lets you navigate directly to any movie genre instantly. Here's how it works:

1. Navigate your browser to Netflix

You must have an acive Netflix account and be logged in for this to work properly. Now, suppose we want to browse Action Comedy movies. Here's what you do:

2. Enter this URL: www.netflix.com/browse/genre/

Scaled URL2.mp4


3. Add the category code for the movie genre you want to browse

The full list of genre codew is below. The category code for Action Movies on Netflix is 43040, so we add that to the end of our URL. See example below:

ScaledURL3.mp4

4. Hit enter, and browse away!

If you entered the URL correctly, your screen should navigate straight to the Action Comedy movies category. There are nearly 250 categories to chose from, and those are only the ones we know about.
