Secret codes to find the best hidden Christmas movies and series on Netflix

Secret codes to find the best hidden Christmas movies and series on Netflix

Netflix has revealed its secret codes to find hidden Christmas movies and series this festive season

Netflix is known for releasing annual hidden codes that make it easier to discover genres of movies and TV series, and this Christmas is no different.

It all started back in 2021, when a social media user compiled a list of all the codes for different movies genres - all the way from romantic flicks to war documentaries.

This bodes well for a lot of us who've experienced what feels like endless hours scouring for a particular movie without knowing what we're really looking for.

Now, every festive season, Netflix releases a list of secret codes that makes it easier to find Christmas movies and series that don't first appear on Netflix's homepage.

With Christmas just around the corner, Netflix has now released this year's secret codes.

Dubbed "A Cozy Kind of Christmas", Netflix has alleviated the stress of the search by organising festive titles into specific categories.

The official description for the collection is: “Tis the season for festive fun and comforting commotion. This cozy collection will spark the holiday spirit wherever you are.”

With over 20 categories released, your festive movie choices can span from authentic, spiritual films to festive romance.

Here are some of the codes and categories for your 2023 Netflix Christmas viewing:

  • Catch Up Over the Festive Season – 2308463
