The original material is typically provided to the translator well before broadcast. This is how Funimation and later Anime News Network got in trouble for leaks of an episode of One Piece and Oreimo, respectively, before they were aired in Japan.

The term has been co-opted by the anime industry to refer to anime that are simultaneously broadcast in on television in Japan and over the Internet in international markets. This is actually a slight misnomer as very few of these anime titles are actually streamed online at the exact same time as they are aired in Japan. The term simulcast has come to be used for shows that are streamed online within approximately 24 hours of the original Japanese broadcast, however it has been used on occasion for shows streamed several days after the original broadcast.

Anime News Network does not use the term "simulcast" to refer to anything streamed more than 24 hours after the initial Japanese broadcast.

Shows streamed online 24 hours to 7 days after the initial online broadcast are referred to as "nearcasts."

Crunchyroll kind of did drop the ball this season but they got a lot more than other sites. The Anime Network has no new shows, hulu only got 2... nura and sacred seven. Nico Nico is really the only one that got some and only 2 are not offered on crunchyroll. Crunchyroll has a lot of continuing titles which is not bad.

If you can't wait for the shows on Crunchyroll than just watch them on the other "legit" sites. I am a happy premium user even if this season is kind of slacking. I think Crunchyroll went for quantity rather than speed this season.

That is probably also a reason crunchyroll has a good reputation verses the others...and gets more simulcasts

Actually, Nura's not a Hulu simulcast, it's a Viz simulcast, they just use Hulu as their video player (even though I watch Nura:DC on Hulu anyway).
