It's a content issue, not WebApps issue.
Michael, are you the right person to deal with content issue?

Hey Evelyn, 

This bug refers to the on-screen keyboard which appears when the user needs to type input into a field on TV.  

The bug is to allow wrap-around to occur (i.e. if the key "A" is highlighted on screen, pressing left arrow should wrap focus around to right-most character on same row "L")

The same OS level keyboard is used across most TV apps.  This is an OS bug.

Do you agree?

I just this claim on the TV's om screen keyboard (v2.1).  

I can confirm that wrap-around on the keyboard is supported/working now.  (WFM)

@ Cosmin - can you please provide a video of your experience, as your seeing it?

Uploaded video of my experience here:
If this bug is about OS level keyboard, let's close it as invalid. because virtual keyboard on TV is done by partner, not existing in our codebase. On simulator, we even don't include a keyboard app in the build. Please ignore any keyboard issue. Thanks.

I think you are right, Evelyn. But let's first take a look at Cosmin's experience before closing this out.

Since web apps won't in 2.6 scope, this issue is not valid anymore after removing web apps from our build.
