It appears they no longer have their Sony license
Is that confirmed or just speculation?!
It's possible that they only had the rights to a couple seasons of Diff'rent Strokes & Fantasy Island and are now in the process of acquiring the rights to more seasons?! I wonder what sales have been like for the seasons they released?
I don't understand why Sony would allow them to acquire the rights to a couple seasons then decide that they are keeping the show to release themselves?! Thus far they have done very little with their MOD program (CBS hasn't done much with their MOD program either), so it doesn't make sense why they wouldn't allow Shout! to continue releasing these shows, especially if they have sold well?!
