Little-known Netflix hack lets you order TV shows and movies NOT on app

THERE’S a little-known Netflix page that lets you request TV that’s NOT on the app.

It’s a great feature if you’re a TV show or movie super-fan.

If you’re a big fan of a certain TV series or a film but Netflix doesn’t have it then you don’t have to suffer in silence.

You can send a request directly to Netflix asking them to consider getting your favourite content.

Simply go to the “Request TV shows or movies” of the Netflix help website, where you can make up to three content suggestions at a time.

You can ask for content that was once on Netflix but vanished – or something that’s never been on the platform before.

If you’re really desperate to see your favourite film on the TV app then you can even start a live chat with Netflix or call them directly.

Sadly there’s no guarantee that you will actually have any success.

Netflix might simply decide it doesn’t want to spend money on acquiring the licences for the content.

And enough users might not have requested the same content – so there’s little incentive to follow through.

Bear in mind that some content will probably never end up on Netflix – no matter how many requests the company receives.

It’s unlikely that Disney+ will hand over its prized Star Wars content, for instance.

But you might have luck, especially if it’s an older piece of content that isn’t currently tied to a streaming service.

And it’s free to make a request so there’s no downside to doing it.

At the very least, it gives Netflix a better idea of the sort of content you’re after.

Netflix produces plenty of “originals”, but it’s also constantly adding content from other sources.

So make your application and keep your fingers crossed.
