Netflix Hack: Time-Saving Cheat Codes Bring Up Specific Categories
virgin radio pride

 

Do you remember the cheat codes you’d get for video games as a kid (which console was ‘up, down, left right, A, start’ again??)? If you’re of  a certain age (which I am but I still look 21 – promise), let’s throwback to a time when there was no social media and you’d have to find out how to hack the latest Mario Bros game from a mate at school, in return for loaning him your Gameboy at lunch.

Again, I wish to impress at this stage that I look incredibly youthful. 

Anyway flash-forward to 2021 – the era of social media and streaming services aplenty – where one eagle-eyed Tiktok user has spotted a way to quickly (because I literally clock more Netflix hours searching than I do watching) filter down to your favourite category, in @LozLinz’s case crime documentaries.

The video voiceover explains:

‘Search’ function in your Netflix account’

“Search 9875,” she continues.

“Every single crime documentary. Thank me later.”

@lozlinz

Netflix hack for all you crime bingers #netflix #crime #thankyou

♬ Black Eyed Peas Imma Be – uh

 

And we will thank you later, Loz, because if there’s one thing gays LOVE… it’s Britn- 

No, wait, there’s lots of things gays love. But crime docs is definitely on the list. 

And it’s not just crime docs… Netflix have secret codes for EVERYTHING. Which is a real time-saver if you like one, maybe two, things. If your tastes vary though then it means you’re going to have to revise and remember THIS lot (warning, it’s biblical):

Of course you could just use the search genre tool on Netflix but WHAT ABOUT THAT MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE A SECRET AGENT WITH GOVERNMENT ENCRYPTED PASSWORDS??! Nothing. Plus this is super specific and fun. As long as it doesn’t mean learning all the codes… but if you do manage to then please let us and the FBI know urgently. 

You’re gonna need some post-it notes and cue cards, sis. While you get learning, why not stick something on in the background with our list of 21 Queer Things to Watch in 2021
