There is no method for receiving Back key event in webOS TV app. In webOS TV, "BACK" button in remote control unit generates the equivalent of a javascript:history.back() call. Therefore, you should use pushState() and popState event for Back button in your app. See Remote Back Button Support.


For your reference, Back or Exit button is not required in webOS TV app UI.
