Netflix is essentially a global TV network

Back in January, Netflix added 130 countries simultaneously to the roster of nations where its service is available. The company has content in over 20 languages, and its user interface is available in 17 languages.

So pretty much the only places in the entire world where you can’t get Netflix are China and a few other nations that have a bias against U.S. companies!

Meanwhile, here at home, Netflix reaches nearly half of all households. CEO Reed Hastings recently revealed that Americans watched 12 billion hours of Netflix in the fourth quarter of 2015, which was up from 8.25 billion year over year.

One key to the content provider’s increasing screen dominance is a recently released version of the Netflix app that will auto-play the next episode of whatever show you’re watching when you finish with the last one. It’s the company’s latest effort to keep you binge-watching on the go and get you to spend more time in the app.

Like a particular film genre on Netflix? There’s a secret code for that!

You already know that Netflix gives you a world of viewing options at your fingertips. But how do you sort through it all?

That’s where the Netflix ID Bible comes in! Just substitute one of the thousands of codes into the URL ‘http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/(code number here).’

So, for example, http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/8985 would be the link for martial arts movies. Here’s a partial list of codes:

  • 8985 = Martial Arts Movies
  • 67673 = Disney
  • 53310 = Silent Movies
  • 8195 = B-Horror Movies
  • 7018 = Political Documentaries
  • 52804 = Faith & Spirituality Movies
  • 10757 = British Movies
  • 75405 = Zombie Horror Movies
  • 5475 = Romantic Comedies
