Like tv shows in US, some are aired in multiple channels, some are only aired in a particular channel. I don't know if you can rewatch them again, I guess not.

Airs on channels, but what's the name of the channels I dunno. It's like Nickoleadon has their own channel and aires their own shows by contract.

Most of the major stations in Japan air at least some anime. Keep in mind, though that anime is almost never aired in prime time (except for a couple extremely popular shows, like One Piece).

Anime aimed at younger audiences--by which I mean everything from Doraemon to Naruto--tends to be shown either early morning (especially on weekends) or before dinner--not unlike cartoons in the United States.

Anime aimed at older audiences (including most of the stuff picked up by CR or Funi) is usually aired late at night--between midnight and 2 am.

So it's not like anime is bumping their most popular television shows--they aren't bumping the Japanese equivalent of NCIS in order to show "Is it Wrong To Pick Up Girls Inside a Dungeon". Instead, they try to air the most popular shows for younger kids at times when kids are watching it, and the rest of it they throw into late-night to grab whatever audience they can (mostly high school kids staying up late--or taping it to watch the next day).

Usually through television stations, that's why screencaps of anime ripped from televised sources usually have a logo at the top righthand corner. That is also why there is some text on the screen from time to time when anime is ripped from televised sources, usually those captions are advertising something related to the anime at hand, or announcing some kind of local news, usually related to weather.

Here is a screencap from Amaburi 1
If you look closely you can see the TBS logo in the top right hand corner, indicating it was aired on TBS.

other japanese TV channels include Fuji TV, Tokyo MX, MBS, etc, it varies from prefecture to prefecture I'm guessing
