Uverse Live TV -- unable to watch NBC (and other major network channels) while on home network

I'm using both the mobile app on iPad as well as the the Uverse.com website on laptop while on the Home Network .  I was hoping I could watch NBC while working, but the option wasn't available.  Specifically, the channels available started from 108 TNT and 1106 Axs TV, but nothing below that (i.e. 105 or 1005).

 

Thank you ahead of time for your help!

Sorry but local channels will never be part of the Uverse.com  Live TV option.  U-Verse has made deals with National networks (Showtime, ESPN, BBC America and so on) but they can't make a deal with the NBC's CBS's and so on as each agreement would have to be with a local station and that would be a nightmare to do.

 

You could always put a Slingbox and an IR blaster on a U-Verse STB and watch it from anywhere in the world: any  channel, your DVR, VOD and so on.

The Slingbox comes with it's own IR blaster to control the DVR/STB. It looks like a little pyramid that sits in front of the box.
