Users can suggest films and series that aren’t currently available through a page that’s hidden in Netflix’s help center. You can access it by clicking on the arrow at the top right corner of the site’s homepage. Choose “Help Center” from the drop down list. Then select “Request TV shows or movies” from the “Quick Links” box located on the right side of the screen. You will then be able to offer up to three title suggestions.

While the feature has been available for more than a year, according to LifeHacker, several people are now noticing it thanks to a Twitter exchange that occurred earlier this month. 

When one Twitter user in the Philippines asked Netflix to add one of Chelsea Peretti’s comedy specials, Netflix Philippines replied, “You know the drill: help.netflix.com/en/titlerequest.”

Peretti retweeted the response adding, “LITERALLY NO ONE KNOWS THAT DRILL,” which garnered thousands of likes. 

Ready to see your favorites? Make your submissions here. Once you do, “you can sit back and relax,” Netflix said. But no need to ask for a title more than once. The company noted that it keeps track of all inquiries from members.
