Don't worry about your English, but I think you mean a "simulcast". Simulcast, shorthand for "simultaneous broadcast", refers to programs or events broadcast across more than one medium, or more than one service on the same medium, at the same time. It also depends on if it's been licensed to a company outside of Japan or not. Oreimo, for example, was licensed to Anime News Network, so since it aired on TV in Japan, as well as subtitled and aired online through their video player, it would be considered a simulcast. More or less though, it's not simulcast you're finding, but rather, a "fan-sub", a technically illegal form of broadcasting series. There are really only three sites that could say they offer "legal simulcast"; Crunchyroll, Anime News Network, and Hulu. Does that help you understand a bit?

I'm not exactly sure why Crunchyroll doesn't have a lot of different anime, but since it's legal I imagine it's mostly about not having the money to pay for the rights to all the anime that they don't have.

I think CrossForte answered everything else quite well.

There is also The Anime Network (although they have only one simulcast per season), Funimation (which seems to be headed in that direction), and Viz (again, typically only 1 simulcast per season). Except for TAN, however, one can usually find most simulcasts from these at Hulu and/or their respective YouTube channel.

Ah, yes, good point, my friend. I totally spaced those out. I think you and I could make a good team for this sort of stuff. Lol.
