Maybe the most important consideration for watching with some lighting on, is to try and have lighting that won't shine directly on the screen. Recessed can lights and dimmers that shine straight down onto tables really help. And having different zones on separate dimmers, so only the lights that need to be on are on. That is my recommendation.
Thanks! Thats exactly how i have it set up. LED Can lights with 5 different zones and dimmers on everything!
