    Thank you, Ben! I think Netflix is a great service, but their search and the way you discover content needs a lot of work. It'll come in handy to be able to better narrow down my searches with these codes. Off I go to watch "Feel-good Education & Guidance starring Muppets"...

    Thanks! Finally Netflix makes sense to me now. I told everyone I know about this amazing discovery lol . I found Italian movies, soccer movies and the coolest of all was African movies!! I tired it on my smart phone and it works too, but you have to open Netflix using a browser and not the Netflix app. Also I gave it a run on my smart tv browser and it listed the movies for me but it won't open. I think it is due to the lack of flash. Since most of us watch netflix on tv, I opened the movie on my smart phone and mirrored it on my TV. Problem solved. You can find the movie that you want using your computer or smart phone and search it on your TV's Netflix as long as your phone and TV Netflix are set for the same country. My phone netflix is Canadian and my TV netflix is American. I might not find the movie that i am looking for on my TV netflix if I initially made my search on netflix codes using my phone.

    Thank you so much for this valuable information, now i am not mad that netflix is taking mo' money :)
