Something from Lifehacker that might actually be useful?  What is the world coming to!?

That's an ad.

edmo: That's an ad.

No, it's the opposite. It's a way to ostensibly find content in Netflix without using their often shiatty algorithm pushing their in house bullshiat.

Oh look, it's this ad again.

I just don't get what is so difficult for Netflix about letting people search for what they want.  Sure, they'll spend more time with your service initially, but in the long run they're going to get frustrated when they know trying to find 'something to watch' means fighting with the interface until they have to do something other than watch a screen.

They should have complex search queries so I can look for "director:espinosa, actor:ryan reynolds, -title:safe house, runtimeminimum:90, genre:thriller -genre:comedy, language:english, ratingminimum:2"

I mean... why not?  Why is this so difficult that so many different kinds of sites fail at it.

Once you have a code you want to use, you'll need to go back to Netflix. Unfortunately, you won't be able to browse with Netflix codes in the app on a smartphone or tablet. These codes only work when watching Netflix from a desktop browser. Hopefully that changes in the future, but for now, you'll need to watch Netflix on your computer to take advantage of this trick.

If i do this in my browser a few time, then Netflix will just send me recommendations on the sub genre?

The Konami Code gives you House of Cards with Kevin Spacey digitally replaced.

So, after spending some time exploring Netflix using this, it looks like they aren't hiding any good movies from me with the algorithm. Turns out they just have a crap selection these days.

Netflix Has Secret Codes a Scanty Interface and Poor Documentation
