The way I interpret the docs, you can use `service' instead of
`simple-service' if you want to replace the default Guix channel.

(By "extending the service", the manual means `simple-service';
 by "directly configuring it", the manual means `service'.)

The following ought to do it:

  (service home-channels-service-type
           (list (channel (name 'my-guix) (url "...") (branch "...")
                          (introduction ...))))

I expect the note in the docs about using `simple-service' by default
is just meant to avoid misunderstanding, as users might not expect the
default Guix channel to disappear if they use `service' to configure
