The franchises for the areas in question in the Portland area are here:
The language everyone seems to be looking for:13.9. Franchisee Termination: Franchisee shall have the right to terminate this Franchise and all obligations hereunder within ninety (90) days after the end of four (4) years from the Service Date of this Franchise, if at the end of such four (4) year period, Franchisee does not then in good faith believe it has achieved a commercially reasonable level of Subscriber penetration on its Cable System. Franchisee may consider Subscriber penetration levels outside the Franchise Area in this determination. Notice to terminate under this Section 13.9 shall be given to the Grantor in writing, with such termination to take effect no sooner than one hundred and twenty (120) days after giving such notice. Franchisee shall also be required to give its then current Subscribers not less than ninety (90) days prior written notice of its intent to cease Cable Service operations.--
