Flixable has become the best way to browse the Netflix catalog.
Netflix has never made it easy to find stuff to watch. Considering how much data the company has about its users, the recommendations it throws out are disappointingly unimaginative and repetitive. It’s a shame because the amount of content on the service is mind-blowing. One only needs to look at some of the gems lurking behind the secret codes.
Several sites have tried to provide a better way to search the catalog, but Flixable’s beauty is in its simplicity.
Use the tab to flick between movies and TV shows. Below the tab are the simple-but-effective filters. You can search by genre and IMDb rating and can order the results in various ways. It also offers a sliding bar for the release date. For example, you could choose to find movies that hit cinemas between 1966 and 1971.
At the top of the page, you can click on Leaving to find shows and movies which Netflix will soon remove from its catalog. It’s always worth keeping an eye on here, Netflix removes content on a near-daily basis, and you don’t want to miss out on something entertaining.
There’s also a tab for Netflix originals and content that’s currently popular.
At the time of writing, Flixable only works in the US, UK, Canada, The Netherlands, and Finland.
