Sky Go doesn't play smoothly on PC - help!

Sky Go doesn't play smoothly on my PC - plays fine on my iphone, but would like to use a bigger screen sometimes!

 

Audio is fine but video is jerky, unwatchable.   I can watch Sky News via Sky News website and other On Demand services work fine, such as BBC iplayer (even HD content streams perfectly) and 4OD.   So why won't Sky Go work?

 

PC has a Intel Pentium P6100, 4GB DDR3 Memory and running Windows 7 SP1.   Windows updates is fully up-to-date, as is Microsoft Silverlight (does Sky Go use this?)

 

I've tried in Internet Explorer and Firefox, same issue.

 

Has anyone else experienced this problem? 

 

I really don't want to think that this laptop is out-of-date/lacks sufficient hardware already....
