A Made-for-TV Movie, also known as a telefilm, is a one-off two-hour (usually) story, made to be shown on television as opposed to in cinemas. Also, a Mini Series can comprise two (or several) two-hour long installments. They will be approximately ninety minutes long on DVD because of the lack of commercial breaks.

Compare Direct to Video.
