It’s no secret that Netflix is a great place to find shows and movies. With thousands of titles available on the streaming site and an ever-growing must-see list, it is undoubtedly one of the internet’s greatest gifts to this generation. Whether you’re looking for a creepy thriller or a romantic comedy, Netflix gives you a good reason to spend your weekend on the couch.
Well here’s a little surprise: if you’re looking for something not yet available in the Netflix library, you can ask them to add it to their collection. There is a page on their website called “TV Shows or Movies Request” where users can suggest up to three titles.
The page has been around for a while, but not many of us have noticed since it is quite well hidden in the site’s Help section.
More users learned about the request page after a fan asked Netflix to record a show he likes via Twitter. User @imnotduddan asked if the Chelsea Peretti comedy special “One of the Greats” was available in the Netflix Philippines library. As you probably know by now, some shows are available in some areas and not others.
Netflix Philippines replied, “You know the drill” along with the link to the request page. Peretti then responded that no one really knows that. And that’s right. Incidentally, there is no guarantee that you will get what you want. Netflix is unlikely to add a show based on a person’s request. But you can always try, right? It’s a fun, stress-free and convenient way to get your voice heard anyway! If you already know the programs you want to request, the whole process will take no more than a few minutes.
Which shows or films do you include in your request? Let us know!
