Yes it will. All it does is use software to take the interface from your direcTV box and put it on your computer. So you would just need to go to channel 700 for example to watch the NFL ticket. Nothing special, super easy. I've been a slingbox user for years. My parents don't have the ticket, so i take my laptop home with me, hook the computer into my dad's tv using a usb cord, then watch the games on my dad's samsung lcd. Not a perfect picture, but it does the trick.
