BUFFALO, NY (ABC) - Beatles fans, your wait is over.

After years of holding out, the legendary rock band finally struck a deal with Apple to bring the Beatles' music to iTunes.

In an announcement today that covered the entire front page of Apple's website, the company said: "The Beatles. Now on iTunes."

"We love the Beatles and are honored and thrilled to welcome them to iTunes," Apple CEO Steve Jobs said in a news release. "It has been a long and winding road to get here. Thanks to the Beatles and EMI, we are now realizing a dream we've had since we launched iTunes 10 years ago."

Apple, Apple Corps and EMI said that the Beatles' 13 remastered studio albums would be available on iTunes. A special digital "Beatles Box Set," including the "Live at the Washington Coliseum, 1964" concert film, is also available online.

"We're really excited to bring the Beatles' music to iTunes," Sir Paul McCartney said in a statement. "It's fantastic to see the songs we originally released on vinyl receive as much love in the digital world as they did the first time around."
