Yes, that is correct.  The Chicago and surrounding area is only in the territory for the White Sox and Cubs.

 

Because you're not in Cardinals terroitory, the games will be blacked out.

 

On some TV providers, there is a sports package called MLB Extra Innings, which offers out of market games for the entire season for approximately $209 (can vary somewhat depending on the provider).

 

At this time, AT&T does not offer the MLB Extra Innings package for purchase.

Do you live in the St. Louis Cardinals territory as indicated by the MLB blackout map?

 

If not, the game will be blacked out for you.  This is true on any TV distributor, not just AT&T U-Verse.  The rules regarding blackouts are set by Major League Baseball, and must be followed by every TV distributor.

i live in the north suburbs of chicago.  does that mean the cardinal games are blacked out here - if i don't live in the st. louis cardinals territory (which i don't) then their games are blacked out?  is that how it works?

 

thanks again for your help on this.

I live in Fairview Heights Il which is in the St Louis local area and should not be blacked out.  I wont to know why we are blacked out?
