    I was showing a demo of the website to one of our clients in office. The font of the website shown on the Tv's browser was completely different from what we had coded. We usually don't test on Tv browsers. Since the client saw this, they have now asked to fix the issue. Does anyone know a fix to this? This is the website we tested https://www.plumbwize.ca/. We don't have this issue while screen casting. And all other websites also load fine on the Tv's browser. Is it something to do with the Opera TV OS?

    If you want the same font everywhere you may need to use webfonts, so that the font you have is loaded with the page, but that depends on browser actually supporting that.

    Otherwise browsers usually pick one of the options you specify or the generic family if the specified font is not actually installed on the device.

    It is possible that the culprit is the TV itself, with the browser/OS on it not supporting the fonts you want to use

    It's probably Opera.... try a different browser... Opera by the way is chinese owned now ... also does odd things in weird ways .... a standard browser IE or Firefox will probably work much better.... option two is if the rendering operating system does not have those fonts available or installed, then it picks a compatible font .... for example in coding you will see font = verdana, arial, tahoma ..... whatever the rendering system has installed is what it uses from the list ... so if you expect verdana and the system does not have it in the fonts file, then it uses whatever it has in order on the list ... your fonts then become arial or tahoma if the system has them available... but your laptop browser has all of them ... so it picks what is coded first. Generic windows fonts are nearly always foolproof.... every system or common pc usually has them.
