Hello! I am a licensed attorney, and is admitted to practice in state and federal court.

Trying to get out of contracts that are bad is often very difficult. However, you could argue that the terms of the contract are unconscionable. an unconscionable contract simply means that the terms of the contract are skewed so heavily in favor of one party that it is not a fair bargain between both parties. Additionally, under the Uniform Commercial Code Section 2-209, parties are allowed to modify an agreement and there needs to be no additional consideration for this modification to be binding. The only exception is that if the parties agreed that modifications need to be in writing, the modification must be in writing. So, you can ask them to Simply modify the agreement so that way you are not having to renew their services for 3 more years if they don't agree with the unconscionable part.
