​Turns Out You Can Request Shows And Films On Netflix

One of the biggest First World problems is not being able to find anything you want to watch on Netflix. You literally have thousands and thousands of TV shows and movies to wade through, and yet you still sometimes lie back in bed, sighing that there's nothing that takes your fancy.

It's a hard life, isn't it?

Well, you can actually rectify all that, as it turns out there's a way to request shows and films on Netflix. WHO KNEW?!

And we don't just mean there's a generic email you can try contacting only to just get ignored - there's a submissions form on the website and everything, and you can request up to three at a time.

The sweet little life hack was brought to our attention over on Twitter, when Netflix replied to someone's query with a link to the wonderful, mythical page.

I mean, Netflix may have said that we all 'know the drill', but I don't think many of us did:

So, what happens when you request something?

"If you've already submitted a request for a title, you can sit back and relax - we've received your feedback and there's nothing more for you to do," the page explains.

"We keep track of all requests from our members, so there's no need to request a title more than once.

"So what happens now? Well, if we add a new TV show or movie that we think you'll enjoy, we'll keep you posted. And if you're curious about new titles coming to Netflix, you can follow us on social media."

That all sounds a little non-committal, but we'll take it.

In the meantime, while you're waiting don't forget about the other Netflix hack, which lets you simultaneously unlock even more content simply by entering a code.

Not all films and TV series are available via the normal search functions, but the these codes will give you access to everything that Netflix has. You can even search via genre so that you're not on a complete wild goose chase.

Simply log in to the site, then head to http://www.netflix.com/browse/genre, before popping in the desired code from below to the end of the URL.

Happy days!
