I am trying to check historical data of a domain and it is showing "not set" under Acquisition>Channels without any filters before 25 Jul 2013.

Data before 25 July 2013Data before 25 July 2013

If I check the data from 25 Jul 2013 to till now it shows different channels such as direct search, organic search, PPC, referral, display, etc.

I might be wrong, but the default acquisition channels report might have been introduced way back then. If you look at the same data, but by medium, does it still show the channels as (not set) before that date?
