Voom, the high-definition satellite service being spun off from Cablevision Systems later this year, announced Monday that it has struck a deal with Miramax Films for the exclusive high-definition distribution rights to 193 films produced by Miramax and Dimension Films. Financial terms weren’t disclosed.

As part of the agreement, Voom will broadcast the movies on its HD Cinema 10 channel starting later this fall.

Among the movies from the Miramax and Dimension libraries are 68 martial arts films, including Jet Li’s “The Master” and Jackie Chan’s “Project A2.” In addition, the collection will include 28 foreign-language films, including “Amelie” and “Strawberry and Chocolate.” The remaining 94 are English-language titles, including “Celebrity” and “Clerks.”
