Watching TV on PC or tablet

Watching TV on PC or tablet

Watching a news channel with the TV app on a cheap tablet or with the tv.xfinity.com website on a well-equipped laptop. On the tablet the news ticker at the bottom of the screen is moving steadily and smoothly, just like on cable TV.  On the laptop the news ticker moves in a choppy manner, very uneasy on the eyes. Why does a $50 tablet produce a TV-like experience while a $1,000 laptop does not? I also tested two other computers, one was even worse than the laptop, the other better but still not a smoothly moving news ticker.
