I thought I read something about different ways to get Channel Divinity through multiclassing in D&D 4th Edition, but I can't remember where I found it or if I found it at all. I'm curious about whether or not there's a way for a character multiclassing into a divine class (e.g., cleric or invoker) to get the Channel Divinity class feature without paragon multiclassing. I know there are multiclass feats like Divine Channeler that grant use of Channel Divinity powers, but I think Divine Channeler makes you treat those powers as dailies instead of encounter powers, so I'm more curious about multiclass feats that treat Channel Divinity like how it is for a full divine character.
Your analysis is correct. You cannot get per encounter use of Channel Divinity without paragon multiclassing (all of the Channel of X feats are require paragon MC).
There is no feat based multiclass that provides Channel divinity in the way that you are looking. You could hybrid with one of the divine classes and get it, but that's a similar (if not more severe) commitment as PMC.
Overall, this is as intended. Generally with MC type features you get encounter stuff daily and at-will stuff per encounter.
