I noticed CR has Daisuki's "Exclusive" Bakemonogatari second season now. Are they throwing in the towel already? Seems like they don't have anything all that exclusive anymore except older shows everyone's already watched.

CR was always going to get it in August, that was part of the deal/announcement.

As far as I know it was just a deal. Like how Xbox gets exclusive DLC for games a month or a few weeks early. That's the only comparison I can think of.

Yeah, we've known about the 1 month-delay window for a while for Monogatari.

The real test for how big Daisuki will be will be this fall. Although I'm not that optimistic about them if they are still going at the very slow pace they're going for their catalog titles.

For refererence, this is a list of Fall 2013 shows that could be on Daisuki(I'll copy this for the Fall 2013 anime thread)

Possible Fall 2013 simulcasts
Saikyou Ginga Ultimate Zero: Battle Spirits (Sunrise)
Magi: The Kingdom of Magic( Aniplex)
Galilei Donna (Aniplex)
Valvrave the Liberator(Sunrise or Aniplex)
Yowamushi Pedal(TMS Entertainment)
Kill La Kill(Aniplex)
Gundam Build Fighters(Sunrise)
Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta(TMS Entertainment)
Kyousogiga (TV) (Toei)

That's 9 possible simulcasts for Daisuki. I think the Aniplex ones will come to Crunchyroll at some point, but it's unknown if Sunrise or Toei will get keep everything for Daisuki from now on. TMS Entertainment has also had a good past relationship with CR but will that change?

Gundam Unicorn isn't free, but I think that's their only premium title at the moment.

Speaking of Gundam, not everyone has seen Double Zeta, so that's at least one show that's new to North America.

Looks like you are all set with your answer.
