Netflix viewers say life has changed for the better after typing in code '9875'

Netflix viewers say life has changed for the better after typing in code '9875'

This should save you a whole lot of time

As great as it is having so much choice, looking for something to watch on Netflix can quickly become overwhelming.

One minute you might be considering a once banned Owen Wilson movie, but then you get distracted by a new film based on a true story.

Or perhaps you’re by tempted a new sci-fi series until you remember you still haven’t watched The Gentlemen.

And then before you know it, you’ve spent half an hour on Netflix without even watching anything.

But fans are finally realising there’s a bit of a Netflix hack that can make the whole thing so much easier.

Viewers claim their lives have been ‘changed for the better’ since just typing in ‘9875’ instead of browsing and browsing. Aaaand browsing.

Some generous social media users shared the handy hack to achieving TV harmony in your home, which dually stops you from relentlessly scrolling through titles before settling on your next watch.

By typing the numbers in the search bar, it will unlock a treasure chest of specific titles dedicated to that certain genre - in this case, crime.

Nowadays, it's almost un-cool if you aren't up to date with your serial killers.

From Jeffrey Dahmer to Ted Bundy - these shocking individuals have been the topic of conversation in the true crime community for years.

However, with the biopics becoming so popular on Netflix, the serial killer genre is soaring to new levels of popularity.

So if you're a fan of the gory stuff, simply type '9875' into the platform's search box and huge list of Netflix's crime documentaries and biopics suddenly appear.

It's as simple as that.

One viewer raved: "It works. Best way to find True crime on Netflix."

Another said: "I didn't think this would work this is really cool thank you."

The only slight issue with the feature is that some viewers were previously reporting rather inconsistent and pretty frightening results.

"Peppa Pig also came up," one user wrote, while someone else also added: "I did it and Shrek Forever After came up."

For those who prefer something a bit more light-hearted, it turns out that there's loads of different codes that are linked to different genres.

So, here's the details for some of the other most popular:

Action & Adventure (1365)

Children & Family Movies (783)

Independent Movies (7077)

Romantic Favourites (502675)

Cult Sci-Fi & Fantasy (4734)

Cult Horror Movies (10944)
