Channel 9 is a Microsoft community site for Microsoft customers created in 2004.[1] It has video channels, discussions, podcasts, screencasts and interviews with Microsoft. The name was based on the channel nine system used by United Airline in-flight that let customers get to know their pilots.[2] The Channel 9 team have produced interviews with Bill Gates, Erik Meijer and Mark Russinovich.

Channel 9 formerly featured a wiki based on Microsoft's own FlexWiki. The wiki had been used to provide ad hoc feedback to various Microsoft teams such as the Internet Explorer team[3] as well as for teams such as Patterns & Practices to promote discussion,[4] although some teams have migrated to CodePlex.
