Does anyone know where I can find an extensive (if not complete) list of legally streaming original net animation (ONA anime) with English subtitles? Finding them is an absolute chore!

MAL search by "ONA":
http://myanimelist.net/anime.php?q=&type=5&score=0&status=0&tag=&p=0&r=0&sm=0&sd=0&sy=0&em=0&ed=0&ey=0&c%5B%5D=a&c%5B%5D=b&c%5B%5D=c&gx=0

Alternatively, AniDB search by "Web":
http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?type=6&show=animelist&do.search=Search

Though not a single list of ONAs that are legally streaming per say, these are good places to start looking for ONA in general. The forum on the individual ONA entry pages on MAL will sometimes say if the ONA is being streamed legally, and where. If not, then click on the ANN page link, and once there scroll down the page, or use CTRL+F, and look for "English companies." Under that header look for "Internet Streaming" and if present, that means it is legally available for viewing in some capacity in some regions. Visit the streaming website listed from there and see if it is viewable in your region. Also, sometimes the Japanese license holder or a Japanese based streaming service will have them available to regions outside Japan. Check for what website hosts them on ANN and see if you can view them. Though not all will have English subtitles and may just be raw Japanese video.

Most actual ONA series have been picked up by Crunchyroll and Funimation.

If you're looking for short omakes and web specials, those are rarely picked up unless they are included on DVD releases.
