Free Solo, which won the 2019 Academy Award for best documentary feature, follows soloist climber Alex Honnold who climbed El Capitan --the 3,200-foot peak in Yosemite National Park -- without a rope.

 The documentary brought in nearly 1.5 million viewers domestically during its commercial-free broadcast debut on March 3, according to Nielsen Live+3 ratings.

Free Solo is a true masterpiece that combines awe-inspiring camerawork with the kind of authentic storytelling that Hulu viewers love,” said Lisa Holme, vice president of Content Acquisition at Hulu in a statement. “We couldn’t be more excited to partner with our friends at National Geographic Documentary Films to add this extraordinary film to the growing slate of award-winning documentaries available on Hulu.”
