I'm assuming you want to stream it or whatever, and not order hundreds of DVDs to fill your house up as though this were the early 2000s.

In Australia and New Zealand only, there is Animelab. Since recently regressing into full weeb state* a week or two ago, I opted for the Premium service for this, which is around $7 a month. Without this, you get a delay for Simulcasts, you don't get the option to watch anything dubbed, and there is a single ad before each episode and another at the halfway point. It's affiliated with Madman, which do the majority of anime and manga imports to Australia when it comes to physical media. They were huge back in the era of people buying DVDs, but I don't think they're faltering as it stands, having found ways to stay relevant.

Pretty decent range, although they don't have "the entire backlog of everything we have ever released", I'm pretty sure licensing laws do not actually work like that. It has apps for the Playstation and whatnot, so you can set it up to screen from your TV rather than having to sit at a computer.

That said, everything I just told you is of no use if you don't live in Australia or NZ.

*I can't remember being happier. All it took was going "Actually I don't fucking care what's happening in America or indeed outside this house, time to watch KonoSuba".

Amazon Prime actually has a passable anime contingent i think.

In the states, Crunchyroll is where most people stream anime online.

I find Funimation suitable for dubs, even if their Roku app is shit.
