I'd like to ask for a comparison in quality of streaming 1080p movies via Netflix or now Apple iTunes compared to the traditional blu ray disc.

What's the best Stack Exchange site to do so?

This is a comment to your question because it's not an answer to your meta question, but streaming 1080p almost always compresses the signal more than blu-ray to reduce the required bandwith, so the picture quality is always going to be varying degrees of less quality than a blu ray. That said, you can get very good HD quality if you have a very high-speed Internet connection, and a dedicated player like a Roku. – Robert Harvey Mar 7 '12 at 18:34

If this isn't a subjective question, I think that movies.SE would be suitable enough for this purpose.

Ask yourself: Can this be answered 20 ways or just 2? If you answer yourself "20 ways", there's no Stack Exchange site suitable for your question.
