I want to leave Crunchyroll because their service on Saturdays, my best day for watching anime, it's beyond terrible. Where would you recommend I take my business? My primary concern is I am looking for a service that actually cares about their customers. I am not trying to start some war here, I just have seen too many other posts about Crunchyroll not fixing stupid things because they are the best game in town and the only way to get companies to give good service is to show that bad service gets abandoned

depends on which series you're interested in. you could check funimation, daisuki, Amazon, and i believe iTunes have some series available as well. Amazon and Apple are known for a good customer service, not sure about funi and daisuki though.

Other than what namealreadytaken said, there is also Netflix.
However, they don't have a wide selection and I think the only show they simulcast is The Seven Deadly Sins.

I have also heard about a site called Viewster, but I haven't personally checked it out.

Funi and Hulu have the widest selections besides CR (that I have seen). But they're not really alternatives as they don't have the same content.

As it stands these are the options available out there ... hopefully I don't miss any ...

Pay Channels/Services
Crunchyroll - Offers the most new content and a very large back catalog (subbed)
Funimation - Offers the most dubbed content old and new and a large catalog of subbed content
Daisuki - Now offering both pay and free content. Much of the content is exclusive to Daisuki (old and new content, but not a lot yet)
The Anime Network - Specializes in a lot of older anime 2000-2012 or so plus a lot of recent titles. Some older exclusives but not a lot of older ones.
Hulu - Fairly large offering of recent/new anime with a handful of new exclusives. Offers titles found on Crunchy, Funny and TAN with some exclusive older titles too.
Amazon Prime - An offering of anime not seen on most of the other services.
Anime Strike (exclusive channel to Amazon Prime users) - many harder to find titles and series as well as a few exclusive new series.
Netflix - mainly mainstream anime with the exception of a few exclusives.

Free Anime Channels
Viewster - A growing selection of series, many not available elsewhere. Older titles.
TubiTV - A growing selection of series, many not available elsewhere. Older titles.
Yahoo View - Much of the Hulu catalog free with ads.
Crackle - A small section with a few exclusive older titles.
Shout Factory - A small section with a few exclusive older titles.
Comicon TV - A small section with a few exclusive older titles.
Youtube - some studios have exclusive Youtube channels where they offer older series.

Of the pay channels I'd say Crunchy, Funi, Hulu and TAN have the most to offer. Of the free channels I'd say it's Viewster, TubiTV and Yahoo View.

as for Amazon Prime, Amazon Prime Japan have a good selection of anime titles, but that's not the case with Amazon Prime US
on the plus side, in either service you're allowed to download and watch on the go (so CR problems with service outage is a non-issue, though Amazon itself is very robust and hardly ever go down). Amazon US recently launched a new service on top of prime, which lets you watch some series if you pay extra, but iirc the library is small.

go to VRV, you can get more out of your package at an additional 3 dollars a month, just link your crunchyroll account and you'll get premimum for both sites that way, Thats what I'm doing
