It seems to me that your version of virt-manager doesn't know about
spice channel yet, so I suggest you to add it to libvirt configuration
via CLI - run 'virsh edit $YOUR_VM_NAME' and add spicevmc channel to
devices list as described here:
Once you add it, you should see the channel in virt-manager, too.
