Abstract

With the gradual popularity of television (TV) sets in China in the 1980s. TV sets have become the entertainment center in almost every Chinese family. However, as time changed, intelligent electronics such as smartphones, tablets, laptops provide people with more flexible interaction because of the difference in ergonomics. People are spending more leisure time on these new devices instead of TV sets. For exploring this phenomenon, the paper applied a mixed method. Firstly, a literature review was conducted to understand the development history of the TV set and Chinese family’s lifestyle changes over time. Secondly, the questionnaire survey was conducted to collect data about Chinese people’s motivations to buy TV sets nowadays. The results aim to define television sets’ future roles in the Chinese family and offer reference to TV design based on the ergonomics theory.
