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. http://www.kramerfirm.com/pictures/thumbnails.php?album=8 has some amusing photos
