Did you ever go to Netflix just to find out that the TV Show or movie you wanted to watch isn’t available? Happens a lot to me and until now I would just sit back and hope that Netflix will add that Title one day. Not anymore! It is possible to request TV Shows or Movies on Netflix and this feature has been there but I got to know about it recently. So, here we are with this tutorial sharing steps to request new shows and movies on Netflix.

As the saying goes –

If You Don’t Ask,

You Don’t Get.

Then, why not ask Netflix to request the show rather than feeling disappointed, helpless and living in false hopes.

I learned about this option from a Tweet from Netflix Philippines where they were replying to a user who was asking for a show missing from Netflix. Here’s the tweet.

Netflix replied with a URL where users can request titles. Here are the detailed steps.
