THERE IS a little-known Netflix site that allows you to request TV that is NOT included in the app.
It’s a great feature if you’re a super fan of TV shows or movies.
If you’re a huge fan of a particular TV series or movie but Netflix doesn’t have it, there’s no need to suffer in silence.
You can send a request directly to Netflix and ask them to get your favorite content.
Just go to “Request a TV show or movie” in Netflix Help websitewhere you can make up to three content suggestions at once.
You can ask about content that was once on Netflix but has disappeared — or something that’s never been on the platform before.
If you’re dying to watch your favorite movie on the TV app, you can even start a live chat with Netflix or call them directly.
Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that you will actually succeed.
Netflix could simply decide that it doesn’t want to spend any money acquiring the licenses for the content.
And maybe not enough users have requested the same content – so there’s little incentive to do so.
Keep in mind that some content will likely never make it to Netflix — no matter how many requests the company gets.
For example, Disney+ is unlikely to release its prized Star Wars content.
But you might get lucky, especially if it’s older content that’s not currently tied to a streaming service.
And it’s free to make a request, so there are no downsides.
At least it gives Netflix a better idea of the type of content you’re looking for.
Netflix produces a lot of “originals,” but it’s also constantly adding content from other sources.
So apply and keep your fingers crossed.
