You can't watch out of market games on uverse, comcast, directv, dish network or any other provider. There are ways to watch them using other methods but you have to pay for it.

You would need to subscribe to MLB.tv.

I would also check your local listings and/or contact your local stations. Here in Indianapolis, local WISH-TV recently picked up 75 games for the White Sox and Cubs.

Because Tribune (WGN's owner) is greedy? Or because the Cubs (who Tribune owns a mere 5% of) is greedy and is charging Tribune huge amounts of money for broadcast rights and Tribune is trying to get it back from AT&T?
EDIT: Thanks, Beany. Yes, @urbanomad, the teams can't sell the rights to broadcast playoff games: that's reserved to MLB who has multiyear contracts with TBS and Fox. So... your complaint would be with MLB, since WGN can't sell this game to Tribune.
The NLCS games are on TBS.
How can we improve?
