Squash vs. racquetball

I finally joined New York Health and Racquet Club which turns out to be more affordable than I thought and decided I'm going to learn squash. Or racquetball. I don't know for sure which one - they both look exactly the same to me so I'm not sure how to decide - flip a coin I guess.

Here are two women playing squash:

All the videos on youtube show squash or racquetball players in action from the back of the players. Hasn't technology advanced far enough, especially in the world of sports, that they could use a clear wall - made out of that super-hard glass used in iPhones, for example - and show the players from the front? It would be a huge boost to the popularity of squash/racquetball as a spectator sport I bet.
