Niconico streams quite a lot of anime, but not simulcast in Japan.

They usually stream the shows 3 days to 1 week after broadcast, and each episode is free for 1 week. Some shows are much later, a month or two delayed. They also "broadcast" a couple of older anime series 1 episode a week, too.

You can pay money to watch older episodes, although they often will show entire series on nama-housou (live broadcast) specials.

Like, they marathoned all of madoka a while ago and got a ton of viewers.

Each season niconico is getting 12-15 shows.
