A woman is farsighted and she is too close to the TV. She can't see what is going on TV.

For this reason:

She steps 3 meters backward to see the program better.

She steps 3 meters behind to see the program better.

Which one of these sentences is correct?

Thank you in advance.

    They can both be correct, but they mean different things. For the basic scenario, I would say she steps three meters back. – choster Oct 23 '15 at 23:49

She steps 3 meters backward to see the program better.

That would work.

She steps 3 meters behind to see the program better.

Behind what? Behind the TV? She won't see the picture at all from there.
