That is a Microsoft limitation on the Silverlight helper.
Seeing as Silverlight is currently on life support ( https://windowsreport.com/microsoft-silverlight/ ) with active development ceasing, and only bug fixes coming, then nothing after 2021, I suspect VM won't be requiring it for much longer.

Edge, Chrome, Firefox and IE11 on Windows 8.1 and 10 all use HTML5 with TV Go not Silverlight, nor does the Windows 10 app use it.

It's only on IE11 on Windows 7 and 8 (not 8.1) and Safari on macOS that you need to use Silverlight with TV Go. I believe that's down to the streaming support in those browsers.
