Well that and - as you seem to imply there - cable TV movies. I remember HBO's Game Change, a movie about Sarah Palin no doubt designed to counter the dearth of Sarah Palin on television, was aired on Sky Atlantic a couple of months back.

On the other hand, cable TV movies could arguably be competing with non-blockbuster feature films (Ed Harris, Julianne Moore, Woody Harrelson... it sounds like the kind of cast you'd have for a movie in respectable limited release).
