You create a push channel to receive push notifications from your service via WNS. These channels are not permanent, and may change for a variety of reasons (the most common being that channels expire after thirty days). There are also events that can occur within the platform that revoke the channel (for example, the global device ID changes). But you needn't request a new channel every time your app launches, if you use this event.
