March Movie Madness (Thursdays 9:00pm, Fridays and Saturdays 11:00pm, Sundays 9:00pm (ET)) brings High Definition Hollywood to viewers on Universal HD!

For all dog lovers out there, we're presenting The 130th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in native high definition, along with The Incredible Dog Challenge Semifinals and Championships.
