Most of the new radios are on 2.4Ghz which is in the microwave band. There are channels in the sense that these systems hop from one frequency to another at a rapid rate. The transmitter and receiver are synchronized (bound) and frequency hop in the same pattern in order to communicate successfully. This technology virtually eliminates interference because each transmitter-receiver pair operating in the band is on a particular frequency for only a tiny fraction of a second, and other transmitter-receiver pairs are using the frequencies at different times.

Different manufacturers use varying methods of frequency hopping so equipment compatibility is usually confined to a specific manufacturer. There are aftermarket receivers that will work with a particular manufacturer's technology, but you must be sure to verify compatibility.
