It's a question that has become increasingly common in recent years — four words all your friends use whenever you tell them about a cool movie you found or saw once a long time ago: Can I stream it?

Now, there's a nifty website dedicated to that very quandary, and it promises to save you time and effort the next time you're looking for a legal, quality stream (or download) of any movie your heart desires.

CanIStream.it taps into the databases of Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video and iTunes to let you know all the ways a movie is available to watch (legally) online. Since all of those entities have to negotiate their own contracts with the movie studios, what's available on one service may not be available on another. CanIStream.it is your one-stop shop, and you don't even have to log in.
