In part one of this article, we talked about the increasing popularity of Netflix and showed you a cool trick to uncovering hidden categories.  Today we’ll look at two more ways to find programs you’ll enjoy in the vast Netflix library.

Search and find

Instantwatcher.com is a site that not only shows you what is really popular on Netflix, but also allows you to narrow it down to titles that might be of interest to you. So let’s say that it’s a Sunday afternoon and you want to watch an action adventure film that has won rave reviews and awards. Except that you also want it to be PG 13 as well, so you can watch it with your kids. How do you determine that?

No problem. Visit Instantwatcher.com, select the Action & Adventure category and check the boxes that say ‘PG-13’ and ‘Award winners’. In a quick second, the results will be displayed for you and you can pick the one that you most fancy. Easy peasy!

Curated lists

If there is one thing I have learned from using services like Spotify, it’s that very often, we find gems in the lists that are curated by other users. I have lost track of the number of times I have found an amazing band or an artist simply by browsing someone else’s playlist.

Netflix unfortunately does not allow you to do that by default however you can use filmefy.com to find curated lists from other users. Click here to visit the site and see the playlists that are most popular amongst the site’s users and you are sure to find something that will be of interest to you.
