Active Channel - Definition

An Active Channel is what Microsoft calls a web site that has been enabled for push delivery to Internet Explorer 4.0 and above browsers. To create a channel, developers write and upload a CDF (channel definition format) file to their Web site where new content is delivered to users automatically when the site is updated. Developers and subscribers can control the update frequency; which channels, subchannels, and items (sections) are subscribed to; and other channel characteristics. Most Active Channels use dynamic HTML (DHTML) and other effects to spice up content and make it more interactive.
