Check out these codes to unlock hidden Netflix categories.

While Netflix offers a steady stream of recommended content specially curated based on a specific user's interests, the streaming service doesn't always make it easy to access more specific categories outside of its algorithm. I mean, it's all good and well that Netflix thinks I want to start watching The Punisher, but what if all I really want to do is cozy up on the couch and find a great tearjerker?

Well, users have now discovered a simple hack to bypass the algorithm with secret URL codes in order to browse a complete list of titles in a variety of specific sub-genres. From Comic Book and Superhero Movies to Military Documentaries, just about every category is accounted for.

To unlock the new categories, subscribers simply need to input http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/INSERTNUMBER into their web browser, and then replace INSERTNUMBER with one of the corresponding codes below for their desired genre.
