Presuming you have several TVs served by the cable from the ground block into the house, it's probably easiest to mount a second ground block next to the existing one. Then run a new cable from the Internet modem to the ground block that terminates the cable company drop. The other ground block would serve the antenna and TVs.

As @teleview has already said, be sure that you don't mix OTA signals and cable services on the same coax.

You may find it worth the effort to verify that all ports of the splitter(s) are terminated by a TV tuner or a termination resistor. Though the ideal situation would be to use only one splitter with just enough ports to connect the TVs in use.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
