It turns out the streaming service still has plenty of titles you've not seen

You may think that you've seen all there pretty much is to see on Netflix, but you're probably wrong - there are more than 76,000 categories of films and TV shows, all set apart by its own numerical URL.

It's easy to assume that the titles you see time and again scrolling through your main library shows off all there is to see, but it's time to cut the streaming service some slack.

Sure, the UK's new additions aren't always the strongest (compared with US or Canada Netflix, anyway), but underneath the surface, there are countless gems for you to unearth.

All you have to do is change the numbers at the end of the dedicated URL and you'll be directed to any genre of your choice ranging from Disney to Classic Foreign Movies and Steamy Thrillers.

Netflix recently scrapped its star rating system in favour of a thumbs up-thumbs down format and has also previewed a button permitting users to skip title sequences of their favourite TV shows.
