Netflix’s Secret Request Page Allows Subscribers to Suggest Movies and Shows

Viewers can submit program suggestions with this little-known web page

Stranger Things

A little-known web page that allows Netflix subscribers to suggest movies and TV shows that the streaming giant should add to its library is suddenly getting more recognition.

After a subscriber pointed out on Twitter that Chelsea Peretti’s “One of the Greats” comedy special wasn’t available in the Philippines, Netflix responded by sharing a link to its request page, saying “You know the drill.”

After Peretti saw the interaction, she took it upon herself to respond on behalf of the internet on Sunday night, tweeting “literally no one knows that drill” in all caps.

If you’re tired of watching original Netflix programs like “Stranger Things” and “The Office” re-runs, you can check out the request page here. You can then fill in three spaces for the shows you’d like to see on Netflix and click submit.

Netflix will then show a reminder it can’t guarantee that the request will ultimately end up on the platform. Streaming rights and “other factors,” like a show’s cost and popularity, factor into the company’s decision. 

Just because you make a request doesn’t mean it’ll come to fruition. Before making requests, if you need a crash course on what hit, and left, Netflix this month, we’ve got you covered here.
