I've seen grounded are the splitters; not the antennas themselves.
Yes, the NEC requires grounding antennas. Article 820.
For cable TV and satellite TV, the grounding wire requirement for the
dish can be met by a continuous run of the coax shield, which is then
bonded to the ground system prior to entry into the house.
Some splitters can serve as the bonding means (they'll have a hexagonal
head screw painted green).
As mentioned, a huge number of satellite and cable tv installations
don't meet code.
