[General] Is there a method to receive Back key event in my app?

Category: Technical FAQ

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 the Back Button article.

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